First Round Nets Playoff Tickets Are 33% Less Expensive Than Last Year

Fewer than 20 players in NBA history have scored at least 25,000 points. Late in the 2013-14 NBA season, Paul Pierce joined the elite class that includes teammate Kevin Garnett, who accomplished the feat during the 2012-13 season. Pierce gutted out more than 70 games during the regular season to help the Nets be arguably the Eastern Conference’s best team in 2014. Jason Kidd has been through quite a few ups and downs in his first year as coach, but his team is rounding into form as the playoffs near.

Surprisingly, Brooklyn Nets playoff tickets for the first round at the Barclays Center have a lower playoff premium than many of the other NBA teams in 2014 and are 33% less expensive that last year’s first round series against Chicago. There are 17,455 tickets available on the secondary market to see the Nets in action in the first round. The average price of these tickets is $218.91, which is just 56.38 percent more than the regular-season price of $139.99. After being a lottery team for five consecutive years, the Nets are in the playoffs for the second straight season. You can see all the action by getting your tickets now.

This team already owns the longest home winning streak in franchise history, so you need to get to Brooklyn to see the Nets continue their success in front of their home crowd. There is plenty of postseason experience on this team. In the playoffs, Pierce has played in 136 games, Garnett has played in 131, Joe Johnson has played in 69, Deron Williams has played in 51 and Andrei Kirilenko has played in 45.

Unfortunately, Brook Lopez, who made his first postseason in 2013, will not be able to play in these playoffs. He played in every game in the first three seasons of his NBA career. However, since 2011-12, he has participated in fewer than 100 regular-season contests. It is frustrating for the big man, especially because he is on his way to reaching his potential after averaging more than 20 points per game in his 17 games played in the 2013-14 season.

Williams, the Nets’ leader in assists, and Johnson, who has been the leading scorer since the Nets announced that Lopez was out for the season, will have to step up their games for Brooklyn to succeed in the playoffs.
