Top NBA Games of the Week (1/18)
January 18, 2016
It was a dramatic week for the Golden State Warriors, who dropped two of their last four games in rather surprising fashion to the Denver Nuggets and Detroit Pistons. While history may be on the line as comparisons to the 1995-96 Bulls continue to pile up, there has certainly been no pause in ticket demand at home or on the road. The team will appear in two of this week's four top NBA games when they take on the Chicago Bulls at United Center Wednesday and host the Indiana Pacers on Friday.
Check out this week's most expensive NBA games below, according to TicketIQ:
1/20/16 Golden State Warriors @ Chicago Bulls | Avg. Price: $468.08 | Get-in: $115
It will be no cheap affair in the Windy City this Wednesday as the Bulls welcome the defending champions to United Center. The average price for Chicago Bulls tickets against the Warriors is currently $468.08 and the cheapest ticket available is $115. Who knows, perhaps some of the Bulls players from the historic run in the mid-'90s will be in attendance as well.
1/22/16 Indiana Pacers @ Golden State Warriors | Avg. Price: $416.57 | Get-in: $97
The Warriors will head home to host the Pacers on Friday night in what will be the second most expensive game of the week. Golden State Warriors tickets currently own a secondary market average of $416.57 and the get-in price is $97. It will be the second and final time the two teams meet during the regular season. The Warriors were able to fend off a Pacers' fourth-quarter push in Indianapolis in early-December, taking a 131-123 win to cement their 23rd straight win.
1/22/16 San Antonio Spurs @ Los Angeles Lakers | Avg. Price: $372.77 | Get-in: $96
While the Warriors have captivated the nation with their run at the best record in NBA history, the San Antonio Spurs have quietly put together their own streak at 36-6 on the season. Winners of their last 11, the Spurs travel west to Los Angeles on Friday night for a showdown with the Lakers at Staples Center. Los Angeles Lakers tickets against the Spurs average $372.77 and the get-in price is $96. The Spurs took down the Lakers with relative ease back in December, beating them by 22 points at AT&T Center. They'll look for a similar outcome in Los Angeles on Friday.
1/22/16 Los Angeles Clippers @ New York Knicks | Avg. Price: $324.18 | Get-in: $75
The Los Angeles Clippers will invade Madison Square Garden on Friday when they take on the New York Knicks in Midtown Manhattan. New York Knicks tickets against the Clippers currently average $324.18 and the cheapest ticket available is listed for $75. The Clippers currently sit in fourth place in the Western Conference at 26-14 while the Knicks are two games under .500 and own 11th place in the East at 20-22.
