Top NBA Tickets of the Week (11/16)
November 16, 2015
There’s the Golden State Warriors and everyone else in the NBA, as the league’s only undefeated team at 11-0 is approaching unprecedented territory for a team coming off an NBA championship. The 1948 Washington Capitals and 1993 Houston Rockets each started their season at 15-0, while the longest winning streak at any point during a season was 33 games set by the 1972-72 Los Angeles Lakers.
As expected, it’s still a logjam in both conferences at this early stage in the season with every team still having plenty of time to make a run (even you, Philadelphia). With another full week of NBA approaching, below are the top five games of the week in terms of average ticket price on the secondary market.
11/20/2015 | Golden State Warriors vs. Chicago Bulls | Oracle Arena | Average Price: $393.71 | Get-in Price: $150 | NBA Championship Replica Trophy Night
11/19/2015 | Los Angeles Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors | Staples Center | Average Price: $290.30 | Get-in Price: $69
11/22/2015 | Denver Nuggets vs. Golden State Warriors | Pepsi Center | Average Price: $236.10 | Get-in Price: $42
11/22/2015 | Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Dallas Mavericks | Chesapeake Energy Arena | Average Price: $199.51 | Get-in Price: $16
11/20/2015 | Los Angeles Lakers vs. Toronto Raptors | Staples Center | Average Price: $187.99 | Get-in Price: $33
So yeah, the Warriors are pretty popular. The defending NBA champions find themselves in the top three most expensive games in the NBA this week on the secondary market, including the top spot on November 20. The Warriors host the Chicago Bulls with an average ticket price of $393.71 and a get-in price of $150 for entrance into Oracle Arena, as fans will be treated with an NBA replica trophy when they arrive.
The Warriors are on the road for the other two contests; one against the Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples Center on Thursday night with an average price of $290.30 and a get-in price of $69 and then travel to the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado to play the Nuggets with an average ticket price of $236.10 and a get-in price of $42.
Other teams are involved in the NBA too believe it or not, as the Kevin Durant-less Oklahoma City Thunder take on the Dallas Mavericks on November 22 with an average ticket price of just a hair less than $200. Durant is still nursing a hamstring injury he had last week. To finish off the top five, the Los Angeles Lakers face the Toronto Raptors as Lou Williams goes up against his older team on Friday night.
