Toronto Raptors have highest NBA playoff ticket prices


The Toronto Raptors haven’t played in the NBA’s postseason since the 2007-2008 season and if you’re wanting to watch their first playoff action since, in live-format, it’s going to cost you.

According to Forbes, the Raptors have the highest priced playoff tickets (at least in the first round) which have jumped all the way to an average of $370 dollars.

The Raptors not only have the highest premium of any team in the playoffs, but also the highest ticket price.  They also have the 3rd lowest quantity on the secondary market, with just 2,261 tickets available across the secondary market.

The average Toronto Raptors ticket during the regular season was $108 dollars, jumping nearly 242 percent.

Behind the Raptors are the Los Angeles Clippers who are averaging over $300 dollars per ticket as well, though, this is their third consecutive trip to the NBA’s postseason.

The Memphis Grizzlies, who have yet to secure a playoff birth (though will with a win or Phoenix loss in the final two games of the season) have the lowest scheduled NBA playoff ticket price at $129 dollars.
