Without LeBron, Knicks Vs Heat Tickets Cheapest They've Been In 5 Years

The Miami Heat will travel to Madison Square Garden to face the New York Knicks on Sunday. The peak of this rivalry came in the late 90’s with four consecutive playoff matchups between 1997 and 2000 — two matchups in the first round and two in the semifinals. These were some of the hardest fought playoff series of the era and both sides had their shining moments.

After LeBron James made his "Decision" and took his talents to South Beach, the Knicks-Heat rivalry got a much-needed boost. Knicks-Heat was once again a marquee match-up for the NBA. While games between these two were some of the most anticipated in New York over the past four years, Sunday’s game will have the least expensive average price since the 2009-10 season. With LeBron James on the Heat roster, no games had an average price below $500. On Sunday, the game will have an average of just $295.82.
