How To Find The Cheapest NBA Tickets For The 2020-21 Schedule

2020-21 NBA Regular Season Schedule

With the NBA preseason tipping off on December 11, basketball fans are very excited to see the league return just two months after crowning the Los Angeles Lakers the 2019-20 champions. The preseason will continue until December 19, and then the first half of the regular season will be played from December 22 to March 4.

The league’s season will be split by the All-Star break from March 5 to 10. Unfortunately, the NBA All-Star Game will not be played in 2021. Indianapolis was planning on hosting this season’s All-Star Game, but it will end up having the 2024 All-Star Game. Indianapolis will still be the hotbed of basketball in 2021, as the 2021 NCAA Tournament is expected to be played in full in the capital of Indiana.

The schedule for the second half of the season has yet to be released. The second half will span from March 11 to May 16, and the NBA’s first official play-in tournament will be from May 18 to 21. The 2020-21 NBA champion will be crowned at the conclusion of the playoffs, which will be played from May 22 to July 22.

At the beginning of the season, the Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Utah Jazz have announced that they will be hosting fans.

Raptors NBA Finals Ticket Prices at Scotiabank Are Most Expensive Ever

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.

Over the last decade, the next highest 'get-in' prices was $665 for the 2016 Warriors.  Even if prices come down as the result of more inventory hitting the market, it's likely that the Raptors would have the most expensive NBA finals tickets this decade. Regardless, it's worth checking Ticketmaster.ca to see if there are any tickets become available for sale. At current levels, this will be the most expensive NBA finals this decade.

Below are details and the currently cheapest prices for the seven potential games over the course of the 2019 NBA Finals.

 

🎟️🏀

All four of the teams that advanced to the NBA’s conference finals know the drill, after all, they’ve been in the playoffs for at least three consecutive seasons. But the only team making a repeat performance in the conference finals is the Golden State Warriors.

Secondary market tickets to a Warriors home game for their Western Conference Final series against the Portland Trail Blazers are among the priciest in history. The $1,133 average asking price is seco
nd only to last season’s $1,200 at Oakland when the Warriors played the Houston Rockets. 

With an average price of over $900, Blazers tickets on the secondary market have the second highest average price and the highest get-in price. Combined, the Warriors-Blazers is the most expensive average price we've tracked for any conference final series.  For fans looking to spend a little less, standing room tickets are available for all game at about a 10% discount to the cheapest seated ticket.

 

 

 

 

 

 

With three straight playoff appearances, Milwaukee is the least experienced playoff team in this year’s mix. The Bucks are playing the Toronto Raptors in a series that starts at Milwaukee on Wednesday. Tickets to that series are the seventh cheapest since 2011. The $461 average asking price to a game at Milwaukee is the least expensive among the four host cities. It’s the 19th priciest of the decade.

This conference final is the seventh priciest since TicketIQ began tracking data in 2011. The priciest is this year’s Western Conference Final and the cheapest was $223 in 2013 for the Western Conference San Antonio vs. Memphis final. A potential Game 6 at Toronto is trending as the priciest game of the series, with an average asking price of $732, while the cheapest is Game 1 at Toronto, which has a current average asking price of $312.

The Raptors and Bucks have played 89 regular-season games, and Milwaukee holds a 51-38 all-time series advantage. The first and only time the teams met in the playoffs was 2016-17, and the Raptors won, 4-2. Milwaukee is making its third consecutive playoff appearance, after missing the 2015-16 edition. The Bucks have advanced to the NBA Finals twice and won once, in 1970-71, when they swept the Baltimore Bullets. For both Finals appearances, the Bucks were members of the Western Conference.

Toronto, which joined the league in 1995-96 as an expansion team, is making its sixth straight playoff appearance. The last time the Raptors reached the conference finals was in 2015-16, when they lost to Cleveland, 4-2. The Raptors have never advanced to the NBA Finals.

Golden State Warriors vs. Portland Trail Blazers

This series is the most expensive conference final since TicketIQ began tracking data in 2011. The next priciest was last year’s Houston-Golden State Western Conference Final, for which fans paid an average of $965. The cheapest of the decade cost fans $223 in 2013, when San Antonio played Memphis in the Western Conference Final.

Despite their geographical proximity, Golden State and Portland didn’t meet in the playoffs until 2015-16, when the Warriors beat them in the conference semifinals in five games. Since then, this series marks the third playoff meeting, and Golden State won the previous two. The teams have been dominant during different eras – Golden State has won three NBA Finals in the last four years, while Portland won its only title in 1976-77, and got to the finals in two of three seasons between 1989-90 and 1991-92.

Portland is in the playoffs for the sixth consecutive season, and has reached the conference finals for the seventh time in franchise history. The Warriors are in the playoffs for the seventh straight season, have won the Finals six times, including twice as the Philadelphia Warriors (1946-47, 1955-56).

The Warriors’ average asking price of $1,133 is the second highest of the decade, behind last season’s $1,200 for a Golden State home game. Among individual games, a potential Game 7 has the highest average asking price at $1,554 while Game 4 at Portland has the lowest, at $636. Interestingly, the $157 get-in price at Golden State is the second cheapest of the four conference finals’ sites, while the $201 get-in price at Portland is the highest.

 

The NBA’s conference semifinals include a familiar matchup, the end of a five-year playoff drought and a series that pits two teams that haven’t played each other in the postseason since 1986.

Demand for the Golden State Warriors-Houston Rockets Western Conference Semifinals, which marks the fourth time these teams have met in the playoffs in five years, is the highest in the league, and the $790 average asking price for a Golden State second-round home game is the highest at Oakland in history, according to secondary ticket marketplace TicketIQ.com. The second priciest was a ticket to last season’s second round, for which fans paid an average of $580 to see the Warriors beat the Pelicans in five games. They went on to oust Houston, coming back from a 3-2 series deficit to win in Game 7 at Houston.

At the other end of the spectrum in the West, Denver is in the playoffs for the first time after a five-year drought, and is playing Portland in the playoffs for the first time in 33 years.

In the Eastern Conference, Boston is trying to erase the memory of giving up a 2-0 Conference Finals lead before losing to Cleveland last season. In addition, should the Celtics win the NBA Finals, and the Bruins win the NHL’s Stanley Cup, Boston would be the first city in history to hold all four professional sports titles in a 12-month period. The Celtics are playing the Bucks in the conference semifinals.

In the other Eastern Conference matchup, the Toronto Raptors are playing the Philadelphia 76ers in the postseason for the first time since 2000-01, when the 76ers eliminated the Raptors in a seven-game conference semifinals.

Below is a look at all four conference semifinals.

NBA Tickets Midseason Report: Warriors & Lakers Still Most Expensive, Raptors & Celtics Prices Climbing

Having the second most wins in the NBA has certainly generated enthusiasm around the Toronto Raptors. So much so, in fact, that the Raptors saw a significant spike in ticket prices between the start of the season the midway point. The average asking price for a Raptors ticket rose 44% from $178 to $256 by mid-January, making a ticket to Toronto's Scotiabank Stadium the fifth most expensive across the NBA, according to secondary ticket marketplace TicketIQ.com
 
The increase is the biggest in the NBA, but only the third biggest move, as Chicago Bulls and Sacramento Kings tickets are now 50% cheaper than they were at the start of the season. Once one of the glamour teams in the NBA, the Bulls have struggled not only to maintain that glitz, but also to win. Plagued by injuries, the Bulls have won only 12 games as of February 7th. Ticket prices fell from an average of $247 at the start of the season to $123 by the midway point.
 
Sacramento hasn't been having quite as much trouble winning —they're two games above .500 as of February 7th. Despite that, the average asking price for tickets dropped from $127 to $64 at the midway point, making them the second cheapest team in the NBA, according to TicketIQ.com.
 
Of the five teams with the highest tickets average asking prices and the five with the lowest at the midway point, below is a look at where those teams started the season, and where they are now. 
 
Most & Least Expensive Teams Based On Avg Secondary Market List Price
 
Top Five 
 
1. Golden State Warriors: At $522, the Warriors own the priciest ticket in the NBA. That's no surprise because they're the defending NBA champions and, well, have had a stranglehold on the league for most of this decade. Golden State started the season ranked No. 1 in terms of average asking price, and prices have risen nearly 13% from $463.
 
2. Los Angeles Lakers: The only other team to break the $500 barrier, the Lakers are benefitting from LeBron James' move out West ... even though he's been out of commission since Christmas Day. The Lakers are commanding $514 on the secondary market, up 11% percent from the start of the season. Los Angeles was ranked No. 2 in terms of price when the season started and at the midway point. 
 
3. Boston Celtics: Led by a surging Jaylen Brown, the Celtics are movin' on up, from the fifth most expensive secondary market ticket price at the start of the season to No. 3 at the halfway point. The average asking price in Boston has risen 22% percent from $225 to $274, and the Celtics have been among the top teams in the East all season. 
 
4. New York Knicks: The Knicks and Madison Square Garden remain amongst the biggest draws in the league. New York opened the season with the third highest average asking price on the secondary market, and are fourth at the halfway mark. 
 
5. Toronto Raptors: As noted above, Raptors tickets have jumped the most of any of the teams ranked in the top five by price. Along with Boston, New York and No. 6 Brooklyn ($206), the Raptors are one of four teams with an average asking price over $200. 
 
Just missing the top five: Brooklyn Nets ($206), Oklahoma City Thunder ($191) & Houston Rockets ($189).
 
Bottom Five
 
1. Detroit Pistons: Detroit has the dubious distinction of being the cheapest ticket in the NBA both at the start of the season and at the midway point. Fans are finding it tough to rally around a team with a losing record, though they're not the worst team in the league when it comes to wins and losses. With regard to ticket averages, Pistons prices fell 24% between the start of the season and February 7th. 
 
2. Sacramento Kings: As noted above, the Kings are one of two teams whose average asking price dropped 50% between opening day and the midway point. The Kings started the season ranked No. 18 in terms of average asking price, and are currently at No. 29. 
 
3. New Orleans Pelicans: This team started the season with the second cheapest ticket in the NBA, and despite the average asking price falling further still, it was ranked No. 28 at the halfway point. Pelicans tickets started the season with an average asking price of $84, but have dropped 11% to $75. The Pelicans aren't having a winning season, and the main reason for going -- star Anthony Davis -- is seeking a trade. 
 
4. Charlotte Hornets: Like the Pelicans, the Hornets have watched their average asking price drop about 11% since the start of the season, but they too moved up in ranking. Now at No. 27, Charlotte prices have fallen from $89 to $79, as the team puts a sub-.500 product on the court. 
 
5. Phoenix Suns: As the Suns have struggled to find any way to win -- they had only 11 wins as of February 7th -- fans have driven prices down just over 8% since the start of the season. The Suns started the season commanding $106, but that number is down to $97. Phoenix was ranked No. 24 in terms of price at the start of the season, and is now No. 26. 
 
Just missing the bottom five: Orlando Magic ($98), Indiana Pacers ($101), Memphis Grizzlies ($107).
 
Midseason Biggest Price Movers

Top Five Price Increases

 

Toronto Raptors: The biggest mover among teams that had a price increase between the start of the season and the midway point, Raptors tickets rose nearly 44% from $178 to $256. In terms of overall rankings, Toronto moved from the No. 10 most expensive ticket to No. 5.

Boston Celtics: The Celtics had a first-half increase of almost 22%, moving them from having the No. 5 most priciest ticket to No. 3, behind only the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers, the only two teams with ticket averages higher than $500. Boston tickets cost an average of $274 now, versus $225 at the start of the season.

Portland Trail Blazers: Portland isn’t fighting for a spot among the Top 10 priciest tickets, but the average asking price jumped nearly 21%, the third biggest increase, and that moved the Blazers from having one of the cheapest tickets in the league to the middle of the pack. The Blazers started the season ranked No. 27 in terms of ticket price with a $92 average asking price, but moved up six spots to No. 21 with a $111 average asking price.

Milwaukee Bucks: Milwaukee’s 15% increase in average asking price put it among the Top 10 most expensive tickets in the league. Currently ranked No. 9 in terms of price, the average asking price for a Bucks ticket moved from $153 to $176 during the first half. Milwaukee started the season ranked No. 12 in terms of average asking price.

Golden State Warriors: The priciest ticket in the NBA got even pricier during the first half. The Warriors started the season ranked No. 1 in terms of average asking price and stayed there, as the average asking price moved from $463 at the start of the season to $522 at the midway point. The only other team with an average asking price of more than $500 is the Los Angeles Lakers, who are currently commanding $514.

Just missing the top five: Los Angeles Lakers (+11.3%), Houston Rockets (+9.9%), Dallas Mavericks (9.7%)

Bottom Five Price Drops 

 

Chicago Bulls: The Bulls are first in the NBA … but in a category they probably don’t want to lead. The average asking price for a Chicago ticket dropped just over 50% in the first half, from $247 to $123. The Bulls started the season with the fourth priciest ticket in the league and, but dropped 15 spots and were ranked No. 19 by the midway point.

Sacramento Kings: Not far behind the Bulls, Sacramento watched its average asking price plummet by just under 50% through the first half. Ranked No. 18 at the start of the season with a $127 average asking price, a Kings ticket is now averaging $64, making it the second cheapest in the league.

Detroit Pistons: The average asking price for a Pistons ticket was the cheapest in the NBA at the start of the season and again at the midway point. But the average asking price hasn’t been static – it fell nearly 24% from $76 to $58 between the start of the season and February 7th.

San Antonio Spurs: With a drop of nearly 22 percent in average asking price, San Antonio had the fourth biggest decline in ticket prices during the first half of the season. The Spurs started the season ranked No. 7 in terms of average asking price, and are now ranked No. 12 as prices fell from $197 to $154.

Philadelphia 76ers: Philadelphia is till in the Top 10 in terms of average asking price, but just by a hair. The Sixers watched ticket prices fall just over 11% from $192 at the start of the season to $170 by February 7th. Philadelphia was ranked No. 8 in terms of average asking price at the start of the season, but was at No. 10 by the halfway point.

Just missing the bottom five: Charlotte Hornets (-11.4%), New Orleans Pelicans (-10.7%), Washington Wizards (-10.6%)
