NBA Playoffs 2011: First Round Ticket Prices

It’s only been a matter of hours since the NBA released the complete schedule for the first round, but ticket prices are already skyrocketing. TiqIQ gives us a nice graphic of what teams are charging on average for a seat at a post-season game.

To buy Playoff tickets, go to TiqIQ.

    Somebody tell Indy and N.O. to fall back. $210+??

    I guess that makes sense, since the Knicks will only have 1 round of games to make playoff profit from.

    you gotta be sh*tting me, NY.

    Wouldn’tve guessed OKC to be charging as much… relatively new franchise and all.


    Have you guys ever seen a game at Madison Square Garden? It’s the best lit venue in the game, the players look like stage performers. You just have to see it for yourselves one day…

    I will be at game 3 of the Atlanta game. I’m thinking about coming to Miami to find Eboy.

    Big ups to Orlando ownership. Most expensive arena in the league, 2nd highest payroll, and they still have the lowest average price. And they’ll only get revenue for 2 games once the Magic sweep ATL. LOL!

  • tonyknorr

    Eboy, outch! hahaha…Respect to cuban, he has always tried to make it affordable and i think those prices are extremely reasonable…even tho he is a douche.

  • PNT

    These are not the prices the franchises are charging, they are what resellers are asking for. If you look closely the data come from TiqIQ, a reseller.

    Big ups to Cuban and Orlando.

  • Anthony

    but……… if you buy your tickets at stubhub… ull save alot of money

    yes, Coney Islander, MSG is a great place to see a game, but $541?! unreal.

    That’s why I like the Magic.

    Its a great place if you’re sitting 300 level and down, but the 400 level is a joke. Its like you’re a bat in a cave. I went to a game at Verizon Center and THAT is a nice arena. Even sitting up top, you had a nice bright clear view of the court. Anyway, those prices make it impossible for the average fan to ever see a live game in these big markets.

    Tickets are way to exspensive..

  • Jake

    Holy crap….i went to a second round game the year miami won the title to see them and only paid 75!!

  • http://Www.fiba.com Darksaber

    Wow. And here i am thinking i could finally catch an Nba finals game in June since i’ll be on the west coast for business.
    Those prices are probably gonna be insane.

  • Danny_W_UK

    Lower Level seats for the Nets vs Raptors regular season in the UK were about $500. Courtside they were about $3000. I’d want sex with 2 cheerleaders at the same time for that sorta cash.

  • Heals

    C’mon, way to cash in Indy, but props to SA, Dal, Orl, Atl and Mem…

  • Trey

    I’m going to the 1st Mavs game…center court 3rd deck for $30. I’ll take that price for a playoff game. Thanks Cubes!

  • http://www.okiboy.net Okitech623

    What are they talking about? I just bought our tickets to Spurs v. Grizzlies for next Saturday. $24 bucks a piece. Got 5 tickets for $128 through Ticketmaster. Sure we’re way up top but still. Not bad at all.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Co-sign LA Huey. That’s why Mark Cuban is one of the best owners in the league–I mean, he’s still charging a lot, but way less compared to everyone else. That has to be the fan in him. Half these owners couldn’t give a sh!t about actual basketball. More than half.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Actually #20-$30 bucks apiece for playoff tickets doesn’t seem bad at all.. Wow, I kinda want to live in Dallas now lol.

  • charles

    so the price range are only according to the home team right? like if LA played in ORL, then the average for admission is ORL’s ?

  • Roberto

    DAMN…. I’m a HUGE Pacers fan and even I think that price is way too much.

  • http://slamonline.com AlbertBarr

    Even if these are resellers prices, $514 makes sense (kinda) for NYC based on cost of living adjustment. It costs more to live, eat, be entertained there.

    Dfrance12 you’re buggin. The nosebleeds at msg are 100x better than the ones at Verizon. You’re closer. Period. Only slight advantage Verizon has is slightly bigger sears bc it’s a newer arena. Plus it’s Verizon has there ever been meaningful basketball played there save for one series against the cavs??
