Cleveland Cavaliers tickets suddenly aren’t so hot.
Ticket prices for Game 4 of the NBA Finals between Cavs and Golden State Warriors have fallen dramatically with the Warriors on the verge of ending the series in a sweep Friday night. Before the series began, fans were willing to pay $1,248 for a cheap seat at Quicken Loans Arena, according to Time.com. Now that the Warriors lead the series 3-0, the cheapest seats for Game 4 now cost an average of just $287 on secondary markets, a decline of $961 according to Priceline.com.
In fact, it’s now cheaper for Warriors fans who want to witness their team clinch the NBA championship to do so in Cleveland than at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif.
It’s easy to understand why Cleveland fans’ enthusiasm is waning.
After all, who would pay $1,000 while the chance of another team celebrating wildly on one’s own court exists?
