Each series features a 2-2-1-1-1 format. The home-court advantage belongs to the team with the higher seed and they will host games 1, 2, 5 and 7 while their opponents will host the remainder. Get your NBA Playoff tickets to see if your team can make it to the finals!
NBA Playoffs Ticket Prices
Tickets for the NBA Playoffs can vary depending on a number of factors including which teams are playing, the round of play, the number of games left to play in the series, seat location and other items. The arena location and the team’s popularity is also another major factor to consider when looking for playoff tickets.
How much are NBA Playoffs tickets?
Tickets to the NBA playoffs start at a lower price in the first round and proceed to get higher as teams reach the Conference or NBA Finals. The seating location in the arena is a major factor depending on if you wish to be in the lower or upper levels. First-round tickets typically average out at around $130 with the second round being closer to $190. The Conference Finals reach an average price of around $275 to $300. The NBA Finals can get up to a price range of $900 to $1,000.
Deals can always be found as prices tend to fluctuate. Research shows that three to seven days before a game is a premium time to buy. Tickets may drop as it gets closer to game time, but waiting includes the risk of missing out on tickets or great seats. If you find the perfect seats, it is best to jump on them before someone else does!
