NBA Finals Tickets
The most expensive tickets in basketball are seats for the 2023 NBA Finals. NBA Finals ticket prices vary greatly based on the teams in the series. For popular teams, like the Celtics, Lakers, Nuggets, etc., the prices for each ticket can exceed $1,000 for a "get in" seat. Premium seats for the NBA Finals will often list at $2,000 or more per seat in large markets like Boston or Los Angeles. The best seats down by the floor may easily sell for $10k to $12k per ticket.
The prices also vary greatly based on which game you purchase. Games 1 & 3 are typically the most expensive since those two games are the first game in the host city and their opponents city. Fans love to be there for that first home game in their venue, so these games tend to get the most demand. The least demand often comes for games later in the series because those may not be played if the series is clinched earlier. Some fans take advantage of buying games 5, 6 & 7 because they know their purchase is guaranteed. If you purchase tickets to a game that is not played, then you will be automatically refunded. There is no financial risk to buying a game 7 ticket.

The team with the better regular-season record has home court advantage in NBA Finals thereby hosting Games 1 and 2, and also Games 5 & 7 if they are necessary. The format of the NBA Finals is 2-2-1-1-1, which means the higher seed hosts the first two games in the series, then the next two games are played at the other team's home venue and from that point they alternate games back-and-forth. This format is a change from the old 2-3-2 format which many experts thought actually provided an advantage to the lower seeded team an by hosting three straight home games in the middle of the series. Historically the team that wins Game 1 of the NBA Finals, wins the series more than 76% of the time.
The Finals match up the two best teams in the NBA for a chance to play each other for the Larry O'Brien trophy. The winner of the Eastern Conference Finals faces the team that wins the Western Conference Finals.
