Secondary Market Tickets Are Nearly $100 More Expensive in Philly Than In Boston
Let’s set aside the poor Game 1 performance.
The Sixers are still -3.5 for Game 2 and undoubtedly favorites to win the series. All is not lost. So perhaps we should regale in Joel Embiid casting shaaaade at Boston fans after the game:

Not as loud. And also not as willing to put their money where their mouth is.
Similar arenas and cities, the prices for games in Boston and Philly, which include a ludicrous 6 p.m. start time on Monday, couldn’t be more different. According to TicketIQ, the average cost of a ticket on the secondary market for a game in Philly is $484– that’s third in the NBA for second round games, behind Golden State (tech money, baby) and Houston, which has a capacity of about 2,000 less than the Wells Fargo Center.
How about Boston, the ostensible finest of sports cities and home of the Super Bowl runner-ups? Seventh among teams remaining, ahead of only Cleveland.
Also noteworthy regarding how much Sixers interest has spiked since their last second round series, in 2012 against Boston? The average price in Philly then was $264, with a “get-in” price as low as $22. As of writing this, the cheapest ticket for Game 4 on Monday – which is by far the best deal for games in Philly – is $128.
Anyway, there are still some good deals for both Games 3 and 4 on TicketIQ. We have partnered with them for years to bring you deals on secondary market tickets. Better yet, they offer a “low price guarantee” on many tickets (if you find tickets elsewhere in the same section and row, they’ll give you a credit for 200% of the difference on your next purchase) and, super bonus, $20 off for first-time buyers when you enter the referral code CROSSINGBROAD. Not bad.
