The Chicago Bulls will be in the playoffs for the seventh straight season and fifth playoff appearance under head coach Tom Thibodeau who, despite injuries to some of his best players over the past few seasons, still manages to lead a winning product on the court. This season has been no different with their two best players, Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose, missing considerable time. Derrick Rose is pleased with the status of his rehab from knee surgery, but the Bulls still don’t know when the former MVP will return. Chicago is now the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference, but is feeling heat from the Toronto Raptors who only trail the Bulls by just a half game.
The Bulls still have eight games to be played on their regular season schedule with three of those games taking place at the United Center. Bull tickets for their final three games at home have an overall average price of $196.27. Their most expensive remaining home game is this Friday’s meeting with the Detroit Pistons. Bulls vs Pistons tickets currently have an average price of $285.84 on the secondary market, with a get-in price of $79.
Once the playoffs kick off later this month, Bulls playoff tickets will see a 25% premium compared to Bulls’ home average of their remaining games at the United Center. Tickets for their first home game are going for a secondary market average price of $246.37, with a get-in price of $68. Bulls tickets for Home Game 2 have a current average price of $246.41 on the secondary market, with a get-in price of $71.
While the Bulls are not the threat in the East most experts thought they would be before the season began, this team would still be a very live dog in a potential best of seven series against the Cavaliers and Hawks.
