The New Orleans Pelicans are having a surprisingly good year, mainly due to Anthony Davis' emergence as one of the up and coming stars in the NBA. Anthony Davis is currently averaging 24.2 points, 10.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.9 blocks per game. Davis' PER is 31.41 leads the league and he's the only player with a PER above 29. The Pelicans are currently sitting right outside a playoff spot with their 19-19 record.
The most expensive home game left on the Pelicans' schedule is against the Phoenix Suns on April 10th. This is the Pelicans' second to last home game of the year and if the current standings stay close to what they are right now, this game could have potential playoff seeding implications for New Orleans and the Suns. According to TicketIQ, tickets are going for $300.15 on average on the secondary ticket market while the get-in price is just $7.
On the other end of the spectrum of ticket prices is the April 25th matchup against the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks, a conference foe, are having a fantastic season. So this matchup is actually quite a bargain for basketball fans that want to see a great game. Tickets are going for just $40, on average, on the secondary ticket market while the get-in price is just $9.
The Pelicans are on a cusp of a playoff spot with the Phoenix Suns just above them in the 8th spot with a 23-18 record. New Orleans certainly has a shot at making the playoffs if they can have an above .500 record the rest of the way. Unfortunately for New Orleans, they play in the Southwest Division, which features the Memphis Grizzlies, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs. All four of those teams are at least eight games above .500 and Memphis is currently 27-11 and Houston is 28-12.
