Thunder Playoffs Tickets in OKC Hottest in NBA
The Thunder won Game 4, evening up the Lakers series. Game 6 tickets in OKC are now averaging $489.
The Thunder keep racking up Playoffs wins against the favorite in the West and fans in OKC are eating it up. The Scott Brooks-led Thunder with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are doing the unthinkable against the vaunted Los Angeles Lakers. Phil Jackson’s superstars Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol have now dropped two in a row to the 8-seeded Thunder.
We wrote in this blog two days ago about Thunder fans’ ticket demand and how the average price of Thunder tickets on the ticket market had doubled to $374 (the highest in the NBA) in just one day — following the Thunder win in Game 3.
We spoke with the LA Times and told them we expected prices for an eventual Game 6 in Oklahoma City to go up even higher than that if the Thunder could pull off another win in Game 4. The Thunder were able to even up the series and Game 6 Thunder tickets in OKC are now averaging $489. That is more than double the Suns-Blazers Game 6 average ticket price of $157. The lowest price Game 6 tickets in OKC are now $189.
Even with the highest average price in the NBA Playoffs, there are still values to be had. FanSnap makes it easy to find the values by highlighting the lowest price tickets compared to comparable seats. Fans can currently save up to 38% off the average price of Party Suite 314 tickets.
The average price of Lakers tickets in LA for Game 5 is $250, just over half of a ticket in OKC. So much for small market disparity. Who is searching for Game 5 tickets in LA you ask? For Game 5 in LA, fans in California are only outsearching fans in Oklahoma by 4:1. Expect to see some cowboy hats in the Staples Center on Tuesday night.
