It has been one magical season for the Golden State Warriors as they head out to Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals on Monday, March 30. This, after what many initially thought to be a sure win by the Oklahoma Thunder after it took a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. But as it has turned out, the Warriors has shown that they aren’t the reigning Champions for nothing.
With everything on the line, Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals will be in Oakland, California and tickets for the game have been selling out fast. So fast, in fact, that the remaining tickets for it have been sold in less than five minutes, as ESPN reports.
With such a magical run, Oakland is ready for the game, even though prices for the tickets have been unusually high. Reports have it that tickets sold have been the highest in five years, topping at $960 per ticket. The highest price for tickets has been at $1,346 for the game between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs for Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals.
The high price for the tickets only reflects on the importance of the game, as well as the interest fans show for the Western Conference Finals. This has been made even more so with the Warriors coming back after being down 1-3. With that record, many have thought that the season would be over for them and Oklahoma riding on its way to a Finals appearance.
But that would not be so, and now the Thunder is facing a revived Warriors come Monday night. The few remaining tickets for the game have been put on sale by the Warriors, which range from $230 to as high as $2,150. Even with such prices, the tickets have been sold out in less than five minutes. The tickets sold at that time did not include any floor seats, which by that time have already been sold out.
Fans are prepared for Monday night as the Warriors face the Thunder. The only question remaining is whether the Warriors will make one last run for the Finals, or would the Thunder get its act together and spoil a hometown win.
