Spurs-Grizzlies Game 2 Is Cheapest Quarterfinals Game of 2016 NBA Playoffs
April 19, 2016
While the Golden State Warriors captivated the league with their record-setting 73-win season, the San Antonio Spurs quietly crafted their own patented version of dominance, posting 67 wins en route to the best single-season record in franchise history. Armed with bevy of talent - from head coach Gregg Popovich to seasoned veterans Tim Duncan and Tony Parker to rising superstar Kawhi Leonard - the Spurs find themselves up 1-0 over the Memphis Grizzlies in the opening round of the 2016 NBA Playoffs.
And though the team is expected to cruise through the first round of play, prices for San Antonio Spurs tickets on the resale market remain considerably low across the remainder of the series. In fact, ticket prices are so cheap that Game 2 Tuesday night is the cheapest game of the Quarterfinal round. According to TicketIQ the get-in price to Game 2 at AT&T Center is now just $20. No other games across the other seven opening round series have a get-in price lower than $27 - which comes during Game 4 at FedExForum in Memphis.
Cheap ticket prices will be in effect as the series shifts to Memphis for Game 3 on Friday. That game currently owns a get-in price of just $33. Should the series reach a Game 6 back at FedExForum next Thursday, the cheapest ticket for that game is $28.
For fans holding out on attending an upcoming Spurs game until a later round, however, don't expect the same prices to be present on the secondary market. If the team makes it through to the second round, the cheapest Semifinal Round game in San Antonio is Game 1 on Monday, May 2. That game currently owns a get-in price of $157 - nearly eight times the price of Tuesday night's game against the Grizzlies. In what could be a potential meeting with the Warriors, the cheapest Western Conference Finals tickets start from $316 each for the Spurs' first home game.
As far as the Finals go, the cheapest possible seats in San Antonio are now listed from $525 each during Home Games 1, 2 and 3. For that to become a reality, however, a dethronement of the reigning NBA champions will need to be in order - a feat the Spurs could only accomplish once in four regular season meetings.
