The Oklahoma City Thunder saw key injuries to Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant drastically affect their 2014, but their return to the lineup in the New Year has reinstated postseason hopes at Chesapeake Energy Center. At 17-17, the Thunder will need to make a much-needed push in the Western Conference over the season’s final five months and they currently sit in 10th place. Ticket prices remain relatively high on the secondary market despite the team’s lackadaisical start, where Thunder tickets over the team's final 24 home games average at $193.13. Below is a comprehensive list of the top five home games on the Thunders Schedule in 2015:
(Tickets for all upcoming Thunder tickets can be purchased at the bottom of this post.)
4/7/15 vs San Antonio Spurs | Avg. Price: $295.22 | Get-in: $41
The Thunder’s most expensive game in 2015 will be played against the San Antonio Spurs on April 7. The Spurs also had a disappointing start to their season just months removed from winning their fifth championship in franchise history. The Thunder will be looking for some revenge on the reigning NBA champion Spurs in this important late season matchup. The average ticket price currently on secondary markets for the game is $295.22 and get-in price starts at $41.
3/15/15 vs Chicago Bulls | Avg. Price: $269.94 | Get-in: $50
The second most expensive home game on the Thunder schedule in 2015 comes against the Chicago Bulls on March 15. The Bulls have also suffered from injury problems as their star, Derrick Rose, has struggled to get back to form after back-to-back season-ending injuries. This late season matchup has tickets going for an average price of $269.94 and get-in price of $50 on the secondary market.
2/8/15 vs Los Angeles Clippers | Avg. Price: $264.72 | Get-in: $34
The Thunders fourth most expensive home game comes against the Los Angeles Clippers. The average price for Thunder vs Clippers tickets to the early-February matchup is $264.72 and get-in starts at $34. The Clippers have started their season strong with an impressive record of 22-11. Led by stars Chris Paul and Black Griffin, the Clippers are sure to put up a strong fight against the powerhouse of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant when they visit Oklahoma City in February.
3/22/15 vs Miami Heat | Avg. Price: $263.68 | Get-in: $49
The Thunder will host the Heat on March 22, which serves as their third most expensive remaining home game. The Heat have struggled to fill the gaping void LeBron James has left in his departure back to Cleveland, but the team still holds the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The average secondary price for Thunder vs Heat tickets is $263.68 and get-in price starts at $49.
4/5/15 vs Houston Rockets | Avg. Price: $244.91 | Get-in: $39
Rounding off the Thunder’s top-priced home games in 2015 is an April 5 meeting with the Rockets. The average secondary price for Thunder vs Rockets tickets is $244.91. Get-in price for the game is listed at $39. The Rockets started their season strong under superstars Dwight Howard and James Harden but have wavered in recent weeks, splitting their last 10 games and losing ground on the Mavericks and Grizzlies in the Southwest division. The Thunder will hope that the Rockets continue to stumble in the coming months when they welcome Houston to Chesapeake Energy Center on April 5.
