Phoenix Mercury News Release

PHOENIX - To show his support for the three-time WNBA Champion Phoenix Mercury in their playoff run, Phoenix Suns guard and 11-time NBA All-Star Chris Paul has purchased a block of 500 tickets for Game 3 of the WNBA Semifinals between the Mercury and Las Vegas Aces at Arizona State University's Desert Financial Arena this Sunday, October 3 at NOON PT. Those tickets will be available to be claimed on a first-come, first-served basis by fans who stop by the redemption table outside of Desert Financial Arena beginning at 10:30 a.m. PT.

Paul, who has attended multiple Mercury games this season, including the team's Round 1 win over New York last week, has been a strong supporter of the WNBA throughout the entirety of his career. In addition to starring in State Farm commercials with Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu, Paul recently spoke about the Mercury at the Suns' media day earlier this week (4:32 mark).

Entering his second season with the Suns and 17th in the NBA, Paul is revered as one of the greatest point guards in the history of the NBA. He currently ranks fifth (first among active players in both categories) on both the NBA's all-time assists list (10,275 assists) and steals list (2,332), and is 22 points shy of 20,000 career points entering the 2021-22 season. A 10-time All-NBA Team member and 9-time All-NBA Defensive Team performer, Paul helped guide the Suns to a Western Conference Championship in 2021 and an appearance in the 2021 NBA Finals.

2020 Tokyo Olympic gold medalists Diana Taurasi, Brittney Griner and Skylar Diggins-Smith return to Phoenix this summer, as the trio attempts to lead the Mercury to a WNBA-record tying fourth championship in 2021.
