Last year, both LA and Golden State had relatively timid outings, failing to go deep in the tournament. Their two big stars were often the lone rangers contributing towards victories. This time around, they have solid backup. On the other hand, both the Nets and Bucks were solid last year, and only seem to be getting better. With the stage set for two titanic tussles, let’s look at what the ticket prices look like for the opening night.

Lakers vs Warriors, Nets vs Bucks ticket prices: Too expensive or not?

The Staples Center is a fortress for the franchise, bringing in packed crowds night after night. Therefore, it is only natural that the ticket prices range from highly affordable to highly exorbitant. While some stands sell out rather quickly, there are still many mild budget tickets available for Lakers buffs. Meanwhile, the Fiserv Forum also makes it feasible for their large fan base to come and fill the stands.

Although most of the entry tokens are now sold out, the starting rate for the tickets are approximately $100. There may be cheaper tickets on the table for other games, but since these are marquee clashes, the starting rates are perhaps a tad higher. Nonetheless, fans can still access the tickets in these affordable stands (Section 305). The prices then keep rising by about $10-20, and go up to as high as $1000 (Section 101). However, fans get great seats in the $200-500 range too.
