Ticket Prices Skyrocket as Linsanity Continues

by February 09, 2012

The Lakers and Kobe Bryant are rolling into Manhattan this Friday night to take on the Knicks. Normally, with Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony on the bench, most would be focusing on Kobe’s Jordanesque dominance at the Garden. But, with Linsanity in full effect, the matchup has turned into a much hyped and most likely, sold out affair. Thanks to Jeremy Lin’s emergence, tickets for the game have skyrocketed as everyone is trying to get a look at the current toast of the town. Our friends over at TiqIQ have informed us that Knicks tickets have increased 27 percent from an average of $407 to $517 since Lin’s first big game against the Nets last weekend. The cheapest ticket available for Friday night’s game is $135—all the way up in Section 417. Linsanity, indeed.
