For fans looking to see the Raptors in their first-ever NBA finals, the cheapest NBA Finals tickets are going for around $2300 for a seat for Game 5 on June 10th. On the secondary market there are roughly 400-1,200 tickets available for each game. For games in Toronto the range is 400-900. Prices were high before all series but have gone even higher following the Raptors wins in games 3 & 4, and the Warriors win in game 5. The average price for that game 5 was almost $6000 per ticket and is the most expensive NBA Finals game we've ever tracked. If prices remain where they are right now, game 6 with be the third highest and game 7 with be the second highest. However, if the series does go back to Toronto we expect those prices to match or even surpass game 5.
