The past few weeks of NBA Playoff basketball have been nothing short of entertaining. The quality of basketball played by teams like the Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder has been great to watch, and seeing underdogs like the Memphis Grizzlies knock off the number one seeded San Antonio Spurs is a rarity in the modern era of basketball.
The 2011 NBA Playoffs has also had a number of interesting story lines underlying the game on court. The meltdown of the Los Angeles Lakers against the Dallas Mavericks was shocking, and the possibility that head coach Phil Jackson might be walking away from basketball has churned speculation over who will take over as the new Lakers coach.
Regardless of weeks past, the Conference Finals are set and underway. The Dallas Mavericks take on the Oklahoma City Thunder in the West, and the Chicago Bulls play the Miami Heat in a best of seven in the East (the Bulls already took game 1 off the Heat).
Out of the four remaining teams, which town is the most amped about its team being in the Conference Finals, a series-win away from the NBA Finals? Check out the data on NBA Playoffs tickets below. These rankings are based on the overall average price of the home games for each team, disregarding game 7.
NBA Playoff Tickets: Conference Finals
- Chicago Bulls tickets: $459

The city of Chicago is clearly out-of-its-mind excited for their Bulls: the average price of Bulls tickets is over $100 more than the Thunder tickets. Although Dallas is last on the list, it doesn’t mean Texans aren’t backing their team: a $288 average ticket price is still a significantly high number in terms of ticket prices.
