SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The Golden State Warriors visiting the Los Angeles Lakers for Tuesday’s season opener at Staples Center is the second-most in-demand game of the 2021-22 season, StubHub announced Monday.
The game ranks second behind the star-studded Christmas Day matchup between the Lakers and Brooklyn Nets at Staples Center.
The high demand for the opener could be because two California rivals with championship aspirations are playing against each other.
The Warriors and Lakers have won two of the last four NBA titles — Golden State in 2018 and Los Angeles in 2020.
Warriors guard Stephen Curry and Lakers forward LeBron James headline this star-filled event.
The Lakers added nine-time All-Star Russell Westbrook this past offseason to pair with James and eight-time All-Star Anthony Davis.
The Warriors look to counter with Curry and three-time All-Star Draymond Green while five-time All-Star Klay Thompson is still out recovering from an Achilles injury.
Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. PST and will be broadcasted nationally on TNT. Tickets start at $91 on StubHub’s website.
