In the Western Conference, only two teams have currently clinched a playoff spot. The Golden State Warriors have clinched the Pacific division and likely the No. 1 seed. Behind them are the Memphis Grizzlies. Memphis is currently the No. 2 seed, but sits just 2.5 games above the Houston Rockets in the Southwest division. The Grizzlies are guaranteed a playoff spot, but the position is yet to be determined.
Memphis has seven home games remaining this season at FedExForum. The average price across those games on the secondary market is $125.69. The most expensive of which will come against the Oklahoma City Thunder on April 6. The average price for Grizzlies vs Thunder tickets is $230.71 with a get-in price of $35. Oklahoma City currently clings onto the No. 8 seed, 3.5 games below the Dallas Mavericks at No. 7. It appears unlikely the Thunder will be able to catch the Mavericks, which means the Grizzlies and Thunder will be unlikely to meet in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, as the 2-7 matchup.
The game against Oklahoma City currently has a higher secondary market price than Memphis’ first two potential home playoff games. The average price for Grizzlies playoff tickets during the first two home games is $140.04. Home Game 1 was an average price of $142.84, while Home Game 2 has an average price of $137.43.
Whether they finish as the No. 2 or 3 seed, the Grizzlies will likely face either the Mavericks or San Antonio Spurs in first round, who are close for the No. 6 and 7 seeds. Memphis is 3-1 in four games against Dallas and 2-1 against San Antonio in three games. The Grizzlies will not play either team for the remainder of the regular season.
