The Boston Celtics took out the Cleveland Cavaliers last night to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals against the Orlando Magic. The first game of the Celtics vs Magic series will be played on Sunday at the Amway Arena in Orlando after the Magic finished with a better record than the Celtics this year.
Tickets for the NBA Eastern Conference Finals games between the Celtics and Magic are already on sale for both games at the Amway Arena and the Celtics home games at TD Garden. You can tell the economy is taking a toll in the Orlando area because you will find cheap Orlando Magic vs Celtics playoff tickets for the NBA playoff games at Amway, currently running from $75 per ticket and up. The lower level seats for the playoffs at Amway are running around $160 per seat and up, but the best seats between the baskets are over $500 each.
At TD Garden the Boston Celtics vs Magic playoff tickets are running about $115 and up per seat for the games set to start on Saturday May 22 at the Garden. Lower level loge seats at the Garden for the NBA playoffs are currently running $225 and up with the best seats over $400 per seat and up.
NBA playoff tickets are seldom cheap, but this year with the poor economy you’re seeing the best deals in years. If your team is in the NBA Eastern Conference playoffs, this year may be the best time to attend a live game with the playoff ticket prices in a funk. Good for the NBA fan, not so good for sports ticket brokers hoping to make up for an already slow year.
