Heat Ticket Prices Sky High Compared to Pacers

Heat Ticket Prices Sky High Compared to Pacers

Fans in Miami see much higher ticket prices during the Eastern Conference Finals than their Indy counterparts. 

Those in Indianapolis for Game 5 tonight can get in the building for as low as $30 on the secondary market. 

Meanwhile, a seat inside the AAA for a potential Game 6 will set Heat fans back $165 on StubHub.

SeatGeek analyst Connor Gregoire says initial prices play into the difference.

"The prices that the Heat put on their tickets, the face values, are just much higher than for most teams across the NBA," said Gregoire. 

Also Gregoire says interest is at a different level for this series in Miami.

"(The Pacers) have just come up against a brick wall so many times that you don't see the same craze you do with the team that usually wins in this rivalry," said Gregoire. 

One other factor given is the cost of living and size of the Miami market.   

If the Heat do advance to the NBA Finals, they will face either the Oklahoma City Thunder or San Antonio Spurs.  Gregoire says the matchups against Miami's last two Finals opponents might knock secondary market prices down just a bit.
