Every season, the NBA and NHL Playoffs fuel the fire for fans, and this year’s action has certainly created a rumble of excitement (or disappointment) for everyone with a horse in the race. Tonight, two teams are in great spots to get a ‘W’ in front if their fans — the Los Angeles Kings may finally win the Cup, while the Oklahoma City Thunder can upset the San Antonio Spurs and propel into the NBA Finals. Even though both games take place in a few hours, it’s not too late for fans (even all the bandwagon fans!) to grab a seat and take it all in. We’ll have tickets available right until game time and you can either download/print/go or pick them up at our Last Minute Service locations nearby both arenas.
A Sweep in LA?
Kings fans have a ton of optimism for tonight’s game, and rightfully so. On StubHub, we’ve seen drama unfold as it relates to ticket prices for Game 4: Prices on the low end hovered around $800 before Game 3, shot up to $1200-$1300 after the win, started to go back down in price yesterday, and then we saw a ticket fly off our virtual shelf for $560 today! Here are some other tidbits:
- No surprise here: 80% of buyers are from California, made up mostly by Los Angeles residents
- The next-highest contingency? Alberta, representing 2%
- Farthest travelers: Stockholm and Dubai
The Western Conference Finals features two incredibly contrasting teams, and while many expected the Spurs to roll through, the boys in OKC have proven otherwise. Tonight may mark the end of this southwest swing for a champ in the West, and fans that want to be in the building still have some time to pull it off. In fact, prices for Game 6 are reasonable, all things considered. While this is the talk of the town, prices don’t reflect the same way they would in bigger cities like Miami or Boston. This is great for local fans because the value of their tickets is roughly 25% more, and they’re getting more bang for their buck. Here’s how pricing has trended the last few days:
- Prices have dipped in the last few days, even with all the excitement after Monday’s win. On Sunday, the cheapest ticket purchased was $140, on Monday it was $95, yesterday fell to $90, and today it has dipped to $84
