LA Clippers ticket prices for January

Cavaliers & Lakers Highlight Clippers Top Tickets In January

For the first two weeks of January, the Clippers are playing at home. They won’t have to leave Los Angeles starting from Christmas, when they host the Warriors, and play 9 games at home from there on. That will be a great chance for the team to pile up some wins, and rise up in the rankings. They have small chance to win the division and catch the Warriors, but this was supposed to be the year they are legitimate title contender. The Clippers showed flashes of their potential during a long winning streak in late November – early December, but then lost few games. One thing is certain, their pick and roll offense with CP3 and Blake Griffin is deadly, but the problem are role players, and their lack of true small forward.

Clippers vs Sixers, January 3, Starting price $16, Average price $49

The chance to rack up wins starts with the first game of 2015, when the Clippers host the lowly Sixers. There is no worse team than Philadelphia for the past two seasons. However, the Sixers have scared few teams here and there, and even pushed Memphis to OT once. Michael Carter Williams is playing better and better, and his duel with CP3 is bound to bring entertainment.

Clippers vs Hawks, January 5, Starting price $12, Average price $63

Both teams are playing good, unselfish basketball at the moment. There are few direct matchups worth watching, such as Teague vs Paul, Griffin vs Millsap, and even how will Deandre Jordan handle Al Horford. With both teams pushing the tempo, this one might turn into a highlight reel.

Clippers vs Lakers, January 7, Starting price $60, Average price $163

The Clippers won the first matchup, but it was a close game. Every time the teams meet, history and fate haunts them. CP3 could have been a Lakers player if it wasn’t for Donald Sterling. Now, he has transformed the Clippers into a championship contender, while the Lakers are headed for the lottery. There was a time the Lakers were the talk of the city, but things have changed.

Clippers vs Mavericks, January 10, Starting price $26, Average price $72

The West is so crowded, that games like this might decide whether a team ranks in the top 4 or not. While there is a notion that positioning is not much important in the West, since teams 1-8 are legitimate contenders, having home court advantage helps. Both the Mavs and the Clippers are bound for the playoffs, but their positioning is unknown. .

Clippers vs Heat, January 11, Starting price $30, Average price $147

The last game of the home streak for the Clippers is a second night of a back to back set and the visitors are the Miami Heat. No longer a championship contender, the Heat are a dangerous team nevertheless. Griffin has increased his midrange game, and expanded his range, just like Chris Bosh did few years ago. Now, two players that were bangers in the post shoot mid-range jumpers and 3s. But Griffin still dunks, and Bosh might find himself on the opposite side of a poster.

Clippers vs Cavaliers, January 16, Starting price $118, Average price $133

Kyrie Irving is becoming one of the best point guards in the league, a scary thought for teams other than the Cavs. With LeBron there to guide him, Irving can take his game to a level that few can imagine, maybe even greater than CP3. For the time being, Chris Paul is the best point guard in the league. But the Clippers might have problems in this game, given their lack of small forward. James might have a layup fest if there is no one to check him. Matt Barnes sure is not that player anymore.

Clippers vs Celtics, January 19, Starting price $20, Average price $70

In terms of controlling the tempo, passing and defense, Rajon Rondo and CP3 are very close. They are true floor generals, and point guards in the rightful sense. Which one will manage to prevail and assert his dominance is left to be seen. But Rondo is known to get extra motivation when going against players such as Paul.

Clippers vs Nets, January 22, Starting price $17, Average price $103

Whether this will be a Deron Williams vs CP3 duel is left to be seen. The Nets have placed their entire roster on the trading block. The team is in a mess, and the Clippers would be wise to take full advantage of the situation.

Clippers vs Nuggets, January 26, Starting price $14, Average price $55
The Nuggets are the Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde of the season. They go on a winning streak, then on a losing streak in a matter of days. They play inspiring basketball, then the next few games, they look like they are waiting for the summer. Depending on which team shows up, this might be extremely entertaining duel between CP3 and Lawson, and Faried and Griffin. Or, the Clippers might roll over the Nuggets.

Chargers ticket prices in December

Chargers Ticket Prices For December Games

If the season ended today the San Diego Chargers would be one of two wild card winners in the AAFC, with the 5th overall seed in the playoffs. The 5th seed would earn them a rematch with the Indianapolis Colts, the team they knocked off on the road in the playoffs opening round a season ago. San Diego is currently a game behind the Denver in the division, but with Peyton Manning and the Broncos holding the tie-breaker, San Diego will have to make up two games on the Broncos in the final four weeks of the season in order to win the division.

Such an accomplishment is a tall task due to the Chargers remaining schedule and the presence of Peyton Manning at quarterback for Denver. San Diego has one of the most difficult remaining schedules, with two tough division games mixed in with two tough non-division matchups.

Here’s a look at the Chargers remaining schedule:

Sunday, December 7 vs. New England:
Get In: $300.00 | Average Ticket Price $426.00
The Chargers host Tom Brady and the Patriots this coming Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium in a game with major playoff implications. The Patriots were in the midst of a seven-game winning streak before they were knocked off by the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday. The loss to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers makes Sunday’s game vitally important for New England as they fight for the top overall record in the AFC. A win by the Chargers will keep pressure on the Broncos in the division race. You can purchase Patriots vs Chargers Tickets for Qualcomm Stadium.

Best Deal for tickets to the Patriots vs Chargers game for those on a budget? The Pats are by far the biggest game of the year and prices reflect it. The Chargers Tickets usually average about $120.00 per ticket so the 40% increase just to get in could be a bit high. For those who like to take chances the box office opens four hours prior to game time, its slim but worth trying to see if any last minute tickets come out. Since the game is at $5:30pm pst it also gives you time to check prices on that day.

Sunday, December 14 vs. Denver:
Get In: $202.00 Average Ticket Price $353.00
The Chargers have a rematch with the Broncos a week after the New England Patriots pay a visit. The two weeks combined may be the biggest back-to-back home games for the Chargers in years. The Chargers lost in Denver on October 23 by a score of 35-21. Since then the Broncos have gone through a rough patch and then, most recently, have committed to a more powerful ground game with CJ Anderson. The key to victory, as always, will be to limit Peyton Manning’s chances down the field. A season ago the Chargers laid out the blue print to defend Manning during their victory in Denver. If they can knock off the Broncos they’ll be in position to earn a division title.You can purchase Broncos vs Chargers Tickets for Qualcomm Stadium.

Saturday, December 20th at San Francisco:
Get In: $137.00 | Average Ticket Price $225.00
The tough season ending slate for the Chargers continues in San Francisco at Levis Stadium when they face Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers. San Francisco has taken a step back as an elite team, but still has an outstanding defense and is in the thick of the playoff race in the NFC. This season the 49ers offense has taken a step back as they’ve struggled to score points at home. In their last three home games San Francisco has scored a total of just 30 points. If the Chargers defense can contain the 49ers offensive attack, the Chargers should be in a good position to earn the victory. You can purchase Chargers vs 49ers tickets for Levis Stadium.

Sunday, December 28 at Kansas City:
Get In: $35.00 | Average Ticket Price $58.00
The Chargers wrap up the regular season when they visit the Kansas City Chiefs. After a five-game winning streak the Chiefs have lost consecutive games to Oakland the Denver. Offensively the Chiefs are very one-dimensional, relying on the rushing attack of Jamal Charles to ignite their offense. If the Chargers can limit the success of Charles they’ll be in a good position to outscore the Chiefs. Earlier this season the Chiefs upset the Chargers in San Diego, 23-20. You can purchase Chiefs vs Chargers Tickets for Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chargers have their work cut out for them in the final four games, playing teams with a combined record of 32-16. The key is to defend their home field and earn big victories versus San Francisco and Kansas City. If the Chargers can sweep their final four games they’ll be in a position to earn the first or second seed in the AFC.

Clippers vs Timberwolves, December 1, Starting price $6, Average price $45
The Timberwolves are a young team, and this will be the first time the first round pick Andrew Wiggins comes to town. He might not be ready for stardom, and is still a work in progress, but the kid shows flashes from time to time about how great he can be. The duel could be a lot more fun if Rubio wasn’t injured, but there is still enormous potential for an exciting game. Minnesota is a lottery team, but the guys play hard, they compete for 48 minutes, and provide a highlight or two. Clippers vs Timberwolves tickets are still available.

Clippers vs Magic, December 3, Starting Price $7, Average price $48
Tobias Harris, Nikola Vucevic, Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton are a young core that can do some serious damage in the next 2-3 years. For now, Vucevic is the only proven player from the group. The Serbian center can go for 20 and 20 at any given night, and the Clippers must contain him in order to win. Deandre Jordan will have his hands full, but he might serve a poster for Vucevic.You can purchase Clippers vs Magic tickets for the Staples Center.

Clippers vs Pelicans, December 6, Starting Price $18, Average price $50
Blake Griffin versus Anthony Davis! Can the casual fan ask for more? Probably not. Two of the best power forwards in the league go head to head in a matchup that should provide enough entertainment and highlights. Davis is arguably the MVP of the first month, and if he continues his strong play, and the Pelicans make the playoffs, there is no reason he should not win it. The Pelicans will visit the Clippers once more this season, but at the moment, both teams are at full strength and playing good basketball. Purchase Clippers vs Pelicans tickets.

Clippers vs Suns, December 8, Starting price $7, Average Price $73
Two seasons ago, Eric Bledsoe was backing up Chris Paul. Now he is running his show in Phoenix, where Coach Jeff Hornacek has the Suns playing hard and at a fast pace. Besides Bledsoe, the Suns have two more point guards that can cause damage in Dragic and Thomas. But none of them comes close to the level of CP3 and his playmaking and shot making abilities. And the Suns frontline is weak compared to the big guys the Clippers boast. The Clippers already beat the Suns on 15th November. Order Clippers vs Suns tickets today.

Clippers vs Pistons, December 15, Starting Price $10, Average Price $62
Few teams can match the frontline of the Clippers, and the Pistons are one of them. Their record doesn’t reflect their talent, but Andre Drummond is a beast, and Greg Monroe is one of the best copies of Tim Duncan and his sound and fundamental post game. The Pistons are still figuring things out, but they can be dangerous. And they are the Eastern Conference team leader in alley-oops with Drummond reaching for every ball that comes close to the basket.Order Clippers vs Pistons tickets today.

Clippers vs Pacers, December 17, Starting price $6, Average Price $80
Even without Paul George and Lance Stephenson, Indiana has managed to hang in the top 8 in the East. After a few games, the team is playing motivated and engaged. The Pacers already have some quality wins (versus Dallas, Miami and Chicago), and there is no reason to doubt they will bring their A game. Roy Hibbert and David West are a good inside duo, posing challenges for Griffin and Jordan. CP3 might have his way with the point guards of Indiana, but he will need help to carry the Clippers in this one. Order Clippers vs Pacers tickets today.

Clippers vs Bucks, December 20, Starting price $23, Average price $39
Giannis Antetokounmpo is a reason enough to tune into this game. The Greek Freak is playing excellent basketball at the moment. Coach Jason Kidd has his team playing inspiring basketball, and his players give their all. Few people had the Bucks at No.4 in the East going into December, but the Bucks are going back to their “Fear the Deer” campaign. They are a dangerous team, and rookie Jabari Parker is playing better by the day. Order Clippers vs Bucks tickets today.

Clippers vs Warriors, December 25, Starting Price $72, Average Price $104
These two teams have a long history in the past few years. Every matchup brings tension as a playoff game, and players from both teams have admitted they do not like each other. They’ve met in the 2014 playoffs, with the Clippers advancing. But this year, with Steve Kerr on the coaching seat, the Warriors are playing even more efficient basketball with more ball movement. The Splash Brothers are killing it, and Curry is a time bomb waiting to happen. The Warriors are second in the Western Conference, just a half game behind Memphis going into December. Not to mention, a Christmas matchup is always a special one. Order Clippers vs Warriors tickets for their Christmas Day game at Staples Center today.

Clippers vs Raptors, December 27, Starting Price $37, Average Price $75
The Raptors have been arguably the best team in the league over the first month. They lost to the Western leading Grizzlies to close out November, but they are still the best in the East. Nobody expected them to be this good, but they are proving experts wrong. Fresh off an extension, Kyle Lowry has matured into a great leader at the point guard position. While many see the highlights from Demar Derozan and Terrence Ross, Lowry is the machine that carries the Raptors. A matchup with CP3 is a great chance for Lowry to show his worth. Purchase Clippers vs Raptors Tickets today.

Clippers vs Jazz, December 29, Starting Price $27, Average Price $59
After wining some games to start the season, the Jazz are back where they belong, in the lottery. They should stay there for a season or two more, but they have solid young guys that can be dangerous. Gordon Hayward is one of them, and this season, the Clippers are having troubles with small forwards. Hayward has proven he is worth the money Utah put in him, and he might go off versus the Clippers. The team from Los Angeles won the first meeting between the teams. Purchase Clippers vs Jazz tickets today.

Clippers vs Knicks, December 31, Starting Price $40, Average Price $160
There are few things that are more entertaining on New Year’s Eve than a matchup between the Clippers and the Knicks. Fate didn’t let Carmelo and CP3 to play together, so they must compete against each other. The Knicks are still adjusting to the triangle, and Melo is having back issues, but he should be healthy for the game. Clippers vs Knicks tickets are available for all sections of the Staples Center.

Lakers Game at LA Staples Center

Lakers December To Remember

The Lakers ended their 4-10 November record on a high note with a 129-122 victory over the Toronto Raptors, Kobe Bryant getting his 6,000 assist as well as a triple double becoming the first NBA player in history to score 30,000 points and 6,000 assists. The December Lakers Schedule will feature two of the best teams in the West as the Thunder and Warriors will be coming to the Staples Center.

Lakers vs Pelicans December 7, Average ticket price – $54
The Pelicans who are 7-8 won the first time the teams meet, but that was in New Orleans. Anthony Davis is playing on an MVP level this year, leading the league at PER (34 at the moment), and this is his first visit to the Staples Center this year. Davis and the Pelicans will come for a visit again in April. The December game is his chance to shine on one of the brightest stages in the NBA. Lakers vs Pelicans tickets start at $25.00 per ticket.

Lakers vs Kings, December 9, Average price – $80
More than half of the experts in the league expected the Kings to be a lottery bound team. However, a month into the season, and the Kings are just half a game out of the playoff picture, with a realistic shot to make the playoffs this season. Demarcus Cousins is the second best big man in the league at the moment, trailing only Anthony Davis. Fans at the Staples have a chance to see two of the best big man in the league in a span of just few days. Lakers vs Kings Tickets start at $26.00 per ticket.

Lakers vs Thunder, December 19, Average Price $127
By the time the Thunder came into town, Kevin Durant might be healthy. Even if he is not ready to go, hometown Russell Westbrook is healthy, and in his first game back from injury, Westbrook exploded versus the Knicks. The Thunder are one of the most exciting teams to watch, and they have a little history with the Lakers. Someone is going to have a big night, be it Westbrook, Durant or Kobe. Lakers vs Thunder tickets start at $62.00 per ticket.

Lakers vs Warriors, December 23, Average Price $140
Steph Curry schooled Bryant during a preseason game, and he got tap on the shoulder from the Black Mamba. This game has the potential to be a high scoring game, or a shooting matchup. With the Splash Brothers on one side, and Kobe competitiveness on the other, fans are the real winners. Kobe doesn’t forget easily, and he might go directly at the Splash Brothers and challenge them as much as possible. Lakers vs Warriors tickets start at $58.00 per ticket.

Lakers vs Suns, December 28, Average Price $90
Another show time team comes into town just before the New Year’s Eve. Phoenix is currently ranked 8th in the West, a spot Lakers hoped to occupy at the start of the season. With a three guard lineup, the Suns are fun and exciting, and they play at a fast pace. Thanks to Gerald Green, every game provides at least 2 highlights. Not that the Lakers play slow, they also like to push the pace. And as much as Gerald Green can do, Wesley Johnson can also provide few highlights here and there. Lakers vs Suns tickets start at $47.00 per ticket.

Cleveland Cavs Court

NBA Average Ticket Prices

Cleveland has become the “IT” town! With the signing of King James the average Cavaliers ticket price on the secondary market went from low of $47 in 2012 to now being the highest average price on the secondary market with a $195 per ticket average in the 2014-15 NBA regular season. Last season the Cleveland Cavaliers attendance was 710,522 making them 16th of 30 teams this year they are moved up 10 spots already with their attendance being at 164,496 making them 6th of 30.

Then there is the Browns picking Johnny “Football” in the NFL Draft which brought the average Cleveland Browns ticket price ticket price on the secondary market from $70.00 to $116.00 per ticket, and even the Cleveland Indians average ticket price went up to $57.00 per ticket from a low of $31 just a season ago. Now all Cleveland needs is an NHL team.

Here is a look at the average secondary market ticket prices for the 2014-2015 NBA season so far.

The King Of New York

Besides the Cavaliers the New York Knicks with Carmelo staying and ex Lakers Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher coming aboard have brought hope back to New Yorkers that the Knicks will back to winning ways again, their attendance has jumped from last season being ranked 18th to this season being ranked 9th and while Knicks Tickets price average is second at $162 per ticket its actually down from last season when it was $200 per ticket.

The Golden Child

If the Golden State Warriors were a stock then Mad Money’s Jim Cramer would be screaming “BUY BUY BUY” starting back in 2011-2012 their attendance was ranked 22nd of 30 and the average Warriors Tickets price was just $55.00 per ticket fast forward just two seasons the Warriors are ranked 2nd in the league in attendance and their average ticket price is now $102. Who wouldn’t want a 85% rate on their return. The Warriors are currently ranked second in the Western Conference behind the Grizzlies.

Oh Canada

The Toronto Raptors might seem to have come out of nowhere to be currently ranked number one in attendance as well as in first place in the Eastern Conference but the Raptors have been on a steady uptick for a few seasons now. In 2011-12 they were ranked 23rd in attendance with an average ticket price of $85, 2012-13 ranked 19th in attendance, 2013-14 ranked 9th in attendance with a $50.00 average ticket price to 2013-2014 ranked 1st in attendance with the Raptors tickets average price of $120 per ticket.

The Good The Bad The Ugly

The Los Angeles Lakers have some of the most devoted fans in the NBA including Jack and numerous other celebrities with the glue holding everything together for the Lakers and their fans being Kobe Bryant. Last season the Lakers were 27th in attendance without him but still commanding one of the highest league price averages of over $168 per ticket this year they are ranked 5th in attendance with Lakers Tickets averaging $98.00 per ticket and having a 3-13 record doesn’t help the matter. With a 51% decrease in ticket prices and getting to see what might be one of the last seasons for Kobe play live makes the Lakers an attractive bargain for the price.

Help I’ve Fallen And I Cant Get Up

The Philadelphia 76ers are on life support and it doesn’t look good. The last time they were ranked in the top 10 in attendance was back in the 2002-2003 season where they were 9th. Fast forward to the 2011-2012 season where they were ranked 14th with an average ticket price of $97 to the last two seasons being ranked 30th of 30 in NBA attendance and 76ers tickets prices falling from an average of $75.00 per ticket to $30 per ticket.

In between the Memphis and Toronto games is a Friday night visit from the Minnesota Timberwolves on November 28th, who feature this year’s top overall draft pick, Andrew Wiggins. Wednesday night the Lakers will need a big performance from their interior players to match up with an imposing Memphis team, led by early season MVP candidate Marc Gasol. The big Spaniard, a former Defensive Player of the Year winner, has taken his game to the next level this season. He’s a versatile player with the ability to both score and be a dangerous passer from the high post. After the Memphis and Minnesota games is a big Sunday game versus the Toronto Raptors. While much of the attention in the Eastern Conference has been centered on the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Raptors have quietly put together a dominant early season, outscoring their opponents by over eleven points per game.

Clippers floor changed to Kings Ice Rink

How does the Staples Center switch from a basketball court to hockey rink?

Ever wondered how the Staples Center floor goes from a Basketball Court to a Hockey Rink on the same day?

The Los Angeles Staples Center is one of a handful of arena’s around the country that not only has a professional basketball team and a professional hockey team they have two professional basketball teams the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers so scheduling both NBA teams as well as the Los Angeles Kings during the October through June games at the Staples Center is a tough job. Dont forget to through in all of the concerts and theatrical type events that go on as well during those months.

On any given weekend and sometimes weekdays there can be an early basketball or hockey game usually at 12:30pm pst and then a hockey or basketball game at 7:00pm pst.

Given a NBA game can last about 2 hours and 30 minutes and the average NHL game lasts about 2 hours 20 minutes that doesnt leave much time.

The typical temperature inside the Staples Center for a Lakers or Clippers game is 75 degrees and 65 degrees for a LA Kings game.

As either the Hockey or Basketball game ends the crew is already in place to get the changes done as quickly as possible. The 83 actual sections as well as over 168 luxury suites need to be cleaned, as well as all other areas inside the Staples Center including all bathrooms, the Hyde Lounge, the Premiere Club and Levy Restaurant and more. The Pro Shop needs to switch out the team playing inventory to the team playing that night’s inventory and numerous other little changes that are done to perfection the only way the Los Angeles Staples Center crew can do it.

If its an early basketball game once the players exit the court and as the crowd is leaving the entire arena starts to get cleaned, the Maple Wood Court floor is removed piece by piece, ad’s are replaced, the courtside seats as well as the the scores table are removed.

The Staples Center team lowers hydraulic seats onto the floor and all non stationary seats are removed from the floor. The main reason that the transfer between a basketball court and a hockey rink can happen so quickly is….the Hockey Rink is always there the basketball court is just overlay-ed on top of it. The crew removes the overlay sheets and rewires everything needed for a Hockey game. Since the frozen ice rink is already in place they corner dasherboards are replaced and the Plexiglas is placed on the dasherboards as well as cleaned. Then the ice itself is cleaned by the Zamboni.

The conversion from basketball court to ice rink or the other way around is a well oiled machine and having two storage area’s inside the Staples Center helps speed up the entire process since all running machines as well as furniture and everything else used for either event can enter the floor from one passage way and leave from another.

What does Kevin Durant’s injury mean for the Western Conference?

As the Los Angeles Clippers ready for the regular season, news broke on Sunday that Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder is dealing with a Jones Fracture in his right foot and will miss at least the first month of the season. The fracture at the base of his small toe reportedly will keep Durant out 6 to 8 weeks at a minimum, with some speculating that the Thunder could look to keep Durant out even longer to err on the side of caution with the injury.

It’s the second consecutive year the Thunder has to deal with a major injury to a key player at the beginning of the regular season. Last year the Thunder were without star point guard Russell Westbrook at the beginning of the year, an injury the Thunder were able to overcome and still finish with the second best record in the Western Conference. The injury to Durant could be much more significant. In Reggie Jackson, one of the best backup point guards in the NBA, Oklahoma City had a solid replacement for Westbrook, something that simply doesn’t exist for Durant. Depending on how much time Durant misses the Thunder will likely struggle without Durant, a factor that can impact the rest of the Western Conference teams.

How big of an impact is the injury to Durant on the Clippers chances to earn the best record in the Western Conference? It could be potentially significant.

More than anything the injury to Durant is a reminder that injury luck in the NBA can be fleeting, and the Thunder have had good luck with injuries during their run of strong play over the past several years, prior to last season. Now it’s Durant who’s on the sidelines with Westbrook forced to take a bigger role in the offense. The one constant has been Durant, who has missed only six total games in the past five seasons, including the postseason. The Thunder have not had to play without their superstar for any significant stretch in the past five years, a major factor in their ability to always finish in the top two in the Western Conference.

Durant could miss 15 to 30 games if you take into account the full range of recovery that experts have laid out. If Durant misses the larger number of games, the Thunder could be in a significant hole to the Clippers and Spurs when it comes to best record and the all important home court advantage in the playoffs, a significant factor in the Thunder defeat of the Clippers in last year’s playoffs. The absence of Durant could mean the Thunder go from a 60 win team to a 53 to 55 win team, a factor that may not only put the Thunder behind the Clippers and Spurs, but could potentially put them in a group of teams that includes the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets.

The Thunder need to be careful with Durant and have his long-term health in mind. Although many players recover quickly from such injuries, there are cases like Brook Lopez and Yao Ming where foot injuries have lingered for a longer period of time. If the Thunder are more conservative with Durant it’s a major opportunity for the Clippers to earn home court advantage throughout the Western Conference playoffs.
