The Cleveland Cavaliers came into this season with more anticipation then ever before with the return of the best player in the world, LeBron James. Up until this point, however, the Cavs’ return to greatness has hit road bumps along the way and the team sits at just six games over .500 at 18-12.
As 2015 approaches, the Cavs will hope to make a push for first place in the Central division, where the Bulls stand firm at 22-9. LeBron leads the team with 25.2 points per game, while additional newcomer Kevin Love is averaging a team-high 10.2 rebounds per game. Kyrie Irving has also been dominant at the point and will likely score All-Star honors alongside James and Love. No matter where the team ends up come springtime, Cavaliers tickets will continue to be one of the highest-priced tickets in the NBA. Below is a comprehensive list of the top five home games on the Cavaliers schedule in 2015 (tickets for all remaining Cavs home games can be found at the bottom of this post):
2/8/15 vs Los Angeles Lakers | Avg. Price: $434.43 | Get-in: $55
The top-priced home Cavaliers game will be played against the Lakers on February 8th. Kobe Bryant will make his final regular season trip to Cleveland, where the average secondary price for Cavaliers vs Lakers tickets is $434.43. Get-in price for the game starts at $55. For Lakers fans living in the Cleveland area, this may be the last chance to grab Lakers tickets with Kobe sporting the number 24 jersey.
1/25/15 vs Oklahoma City Thunder | Avg. Price: $401.76 | Get-in: $55
On January 25, the Cavaliers will host the duo of Russell Westbrook and the reigning league MVP Kevin Durant as the OKC Thunder travel to Quicken Loans Arena. Both will be fighting for playoff positions as the Thunder continue to rebound following Durant’s early-season absence. The average price for Cavaliers vs Thunder tickets is $401.76 on the secondary market and get-in price is listed at $55. The late-January matchup will be the first and final time the Thunder visit Cleveland in the regular season.
2/11/15 vs Miami Heat | Avg. Price: $396.39 | Get-in: $65
The Cavs will host the Miami Heat on February 11 and the game serves as the third highest-priced home game in 2015. The average secondary price for Cavaliers vs Heat tickets is $396.39. Get-in price is $65 for the game. The Miami Heat are still dealing with the backlash of LeBron’s return to Cleveland and thus far the Heat sit in third place in the Southeast conference with a record of 14-18. Grabbing a Heat Ticket for this game will be intriguing as The King takes on his former team.
2/05/15 vs Los Angeles Clippers | Avg. Price: $376.52 | Get-in: $23
The Cavaliers will battle the Los Angeles Clippers on February 5, where the average price for Cavaliers vs Clippers tickets is $376.52 and get-in price is $23 on the secondary market. The Clippers hold an impressive 21-11 record in a competitive Western Conference, yet they still sit in second place in the Pacific division behind the Warriors. The early-February matchup will also be one of the most expensive road games on the Clippers schedule this season.
3/7/15 vs Phoenix Suns | Avg. Price: $371.51 | Get-in: $38
Goran Drajic and his Phoenix Suns head to Cleveland on March 7 in what will be the fifth most expensive home game at the Quicken Loans Arena in 2015. The average secondary price for Cavaliers vs Suns tickets is $371.51 and get-in price starts at $38. The Suns currently sit in the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, but plenty of movement in the standings will likely occur before they take on the Cavs in March.
