SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – The Golden State Warriors might as well call the finals their home, having gone six times in eight years which ties the Michael Jordan Chicago Bulls.
Any time you’re mentioned in the same sentence as Jordan, you’re doing something right.
The Warriors are undefeated at home during the playoffs: a 9-0 record.
The Warriors and Boston Celtics have actually played each other before in the NBA finals.
That was back in 1964 when it was Wilt Chamberlain against Bill Russell.
Tickets are available from the Warriors but it’s standing room only and those go for about $200.
If you want a seat get ready to shell out hundreds, and more than likely thousands of dollars, for nosebleed seats — but at least you’re at the game.
According to StubHub, there are still more than 1,600 tickets available for Game 1 with a starting price of $615. For Sunday night’s Game 2, there are over 2,100 tickets available which fans can buy, starting at $795.
Sales for Game 1 have jumped 65% in the past 48 hours while sales for Game 2 have jumped 50% over the same time period. A majority of fans attending Game 1 come from California at 68%, followed by Massachusetts at 3%.
If you’re thinking about heading to Boston for Game next Wednesday, there are still more than 3,400 tickets available with prices starting at about $795.
