When is the Best Time to Buy NBA Tickets?

When NBA game tickets first go on sale, these basketball ticket prices can initially be priced fairly high by the season ticket holders. Generally, NBA ticket prices decrease gradually as game day approaches and 72 hours before the game, tickets may have decreased in price by roughly 30%. In the last 24 hours before tipoff, ticket prices can decrease by an additional 5% on average. Therefore, we believe the best time to buy cheap NBA tickets is three-to-seven days prior to game day.

When the NBA Playoffs, NBA Eastern Conference Finals, NBA Western Conference finals, and NBA Finals approach, that's when NBA tickets 2021 ticket prices will be at their absolute highest of the season.

Where are the Cheapest Seats for an NBA Game?

While the best seats for an NBA game are always going to be in the lower level closest to midcourt, these seats will also have the highest NBA ticket prices. If you want lower level seats for an NBA game while you're on a budget, we would advise looking into NBA tickets in the corners of the court. Those seats provide good value and offer better views of the action than sitting on the baseline behind the basket. When searching for tickets in the upper levels of these venues, the row location is more important than it is in the lower level. This is because the difference in rows are felt more in the upper level than in the lower level. For example, we would rather sit in rows 1-5 in a corner section in the upper level than in row 20 in an upper level section near midcourt. You can always refer to TickPick's Score Report to help guide you to the best value when deciding between different basketball tickets.
