Lakers & Clippers Top Spurs Tickets In January

The Spurs welcome the New Year at home, playing in the AT&T Center on 31st December. Their next 3 games are also at home. The schedule for January is also rather favorable, with more games at home than on the road. Additionally, the Spurs have only 3 tough matchups in January, against the Bulls, Clippers and Blazers. They will play only 14 games in January, with only one back to back. In other words, January is the perfect month for Coach Pop to give some rest to his core players. Here is a look at Spurs Ticket prices for their games at the AT&T Center on the January Schedule.

Spurs vs Wizards, January 3, Average price $52

After two full days of rest, the Spurs welcome John Wall and the Wizards. Wall believes he and his buddy are the best back court duo in the league, but the “old school” guys from the Spurs execute the offense to perfection. It is good to get some lessons from time to time, and Wall might just be in for a treat. Spurs vs Wizards Tickets Starting price $27.00.

Spurs vs Pistons, January 6, Average price $29

As mentioned, the schedule is kind to the Spurs in January. They get two days rest again, and play the lowly Pistons. However, the Pistons can surprise from time to time, but they are still a lottery team. Their biggest weapon is the front court, where Andre Drummond is shaping into a real star. Add Monroe and Josh Smith, and Duncan might have to push a bit more and waste more energy this game.Spurs vs Pistons Tickets Starting price $7.00.

Spurs vs Suns, January 9, Average price $78

Phoenix is one of the few teams that have beaten the Spurs this season, and they always pose a challenge with their speed and tempo. Their three guard lineup can be problem for the Spurs defensively, but they can also exploit those matchups on offense, where Kawhi Leonard would be guarded by a point guard.Spurs vs Suns Tickets Starting price $16.00.

Spurs vs Blazers, January 16, Average price $62

The Spurs demolished the Blazers in the 2014 playoffs, and the Blazers run over the Spurs in their first duel this season. But now the Spurs are playing at home, and have one of the western conference rivals in the house. The game should be interesting, no question about it, but whether it will be a high scoring or a low scoring game, it depends on the Spurs.Spurs vs Trail Blazers Tickets Starting price $19.00.

Spurs vs Jazz, January 18, Average price $39

The Spurs tend to surprise everyone from time to time. Their loss this season to the Jazz can be attributed to those surprises. But while they can make a mistake once, they do not let the mistakes haunt them. The Jazz are a lottery team, and the Spurs would be wise to show their place.Spurs vs Trail Blazers Tickets Starting price $10.00.

Spurs vs Lakers, January 23, Average price $90

We won’t get many more Bryant vs Duncan duels. Therefore, it would be nice to cherish the duels of these two great players that marked the last two decades. The teams split the first two games this season, and this one is the deciding one. Not that it matters for tie breakers, since the Lakers are bound to miss the playoffs, but the Spurs need wins versus weak opponents to keep their high ranking and have home court advantage in the playoffs.Spurs vs Lakers Tickets Starting price $37.00.

Spurs vs Bucks, January 25, Average price $27

Too bad rookie Jabari Parker hurt his knee, and will miss the rest of the season. He could have picked some valuable lessons from Tim Duncan, and it is unknown whether he will get the same chance next year. The Bucks have some quality players, such as the Greek Freak and Brandon Knight to cause some damage, but without their rookie, they will be weaker.Spurs vs Bucks Tickets Starting price $8.00.

Spurs vs Hornets, Average price $49

The Hornets might be just what the Spurs need before they close out January with a duel with the Clippers. Big Al is the only problem for the Spurs, but they have quality defenders in the post that can contain Jefferson. Whether Lance Stephenson will be wearing a Hornets uniform by the time the matchup occurs, it is unknown. The Hornets are reportedly looking to trade him.Spurs vs Hornets Tickets Starting price $16.00.

Spurs vs Clippers, January 31, Average price $80

The first duel between the two was a low scoring game, with the Spurs managing to prevail 88-85. But both teams have since improved their play, and by the time the game is played, the teams might be in the top 4 in the West. The Spurs are ranked lower than the Clippers, but they are catching steam lately. The Clippers are also playing some inspiring basketball in December, but there is time till January.Spurs vs Clippers Tickets Starting price $35.00.

Lakers schedule

Bulls & Cavaliers Highlight Lakers Top Tickets In January

The Los Angeles Lakers have a tough decision and job to do. On one hand, they are way out of the playoffs. They are 4 games behind the 8th ranked Pelicans, but the Thunder are bound to get to that spot and improve even more. In order to get to the playoffs, the Lakers might actually have to make up for the difference with the 7th ranked team currently, which is Dallas. They are almost 10 games behind. If they fail to make the playoffs, it will be the FIRST time in Lakers history that the team has missed the playoffs in consecutive years. On the other hand, their first round pick is top 5 protected, and that might be the best chance for the team to get a quality player. If the draft is now, they will pick 7th, unless they jump into the top 3 by luck. Being in limbo is not something the Lakers are used to do, but they will have to do it this season. Kobe Bryant passed Michael Jordan on the scoring list, so the only reason left to watch the Lakers this season is, well, entertainment. No matter how bad they are, the Lakers are a show to watch any day of the week, and twice on Sunday. Here is a look at Lakers ticket prices and their January schedule.

Lakers vs Grizzlies, January 2, Starting price $41, Average price $74

Arguably the best team in the West, or the second best team comes to Staples Center. Marc Gasol is an MVP candidate. Yes, that is the same Gasol Lakers traded for Pau. But, Pau brought the team 2 titles, and the other Gasol is now blossoming. The Lakers did beat the Spurs this year, so they can handle strong teams from time to time.

Lakers vs Pacers, January 4, Starting price $33, Average price $82

In some parallel world, this would be a homecoming for Paul George. Sadly, the Los Angeles native is hurt, which might be good news for the Lakers. The Pacers are another team in a limbo, giving the Lakers a fair chance for a win. They lost the first duel with the Pacers in Indiana.

Lakers vs Magic, January 9, Starting price $30, Average price $84

Another very winnable game for the Lakers as they host the Magic, a team that was supposed to improve this season, but it hasn’t happened yet. One good reason to tune into this game is Elfrid Payton and his haircut. Not that he is not a good player, but his haircut is fun to see.

Lakers vs Blazers, January 11, Starting price $32, Average price $82

The Lakers have yet to play the Blazers this season. Two years ago, the teams were on the opposite side, as Lakers were trying to win the West, while the Blazers were hoping to make the playoffs. Things change fast in the NBA. At least you get to see Kobe going at the Blazers, one team he loves to compete with, both in LA and in Portland.

Lakers vs Heat, January 13, Starting Price $44, Average price $202

Last year, this was a LeBron vs Kobe matchup. This year, it is back to Kobe vs Wade, two shooting guards that are way past their prime, but still very much serviceable players. Their duels over the years are legendary, and there won’t be many more of those duels.

Lakers vs Cavaliers, January 15, Starting Price $118, Average price $152

The Lakers finish their four game home streak with the Cavaliers, hosting James, Irving and Love. This game should provide tons of excitement, as the King is coming to LA, after being free agent this summer. LeBron has ditched the Lakers few times by now. But the more interesting question might be Kevin Love, who is on the Lakers radar as a free agent target this summer.

Lakers vs Rockets, January 25, Starting price $39, Average price $105
The teams split the first two games. But the more interesting moment was Kobe calling Dwight soft during the first matchup. Until Kobe plays for the Lakers, and Dwight is wearing a Houston uniform, the duels with the Rockets will be intriguing. Not to mention that James Harden has unofficially taken over the title best shooting guard in the league, and Kobe always tries to prove something.

Lakers vs Wizards, January 27, Starting price $25, Average price $76

The Wizards spanked the Lakers in their first duel, with Bradley Beal going for 27 points and Chris Humphries dominating the boards with 20 rebounds. Those two things cannot happen again if the Lakers hope to get a win.

Lakers vs Bulls, January 29, Starting price $62, Average price $132

The teams will meet for Christmas, and it has become a standard in the past years the Lakers and the Bulls to play on Christmas. Pau Gasol is coming back to town, after he left to play with a contending team. It looks like he made the right choice, but Kobe doesn’t forget and forgive, even friends and close partners such as Pau was to him.

Warriors Tickets

Warriors have a true homecourt advantage

Golden State Warriors fansIn sports, playing at home makes a world of difference. Being able to sleep in your own bed, go without the travel, and go through your normal routine is an advantage in sports. For the most part, teams at home perform better. Every team in the NBA had a better record at home than away last season with the Washington Wizards having an even split. Who has the game’s best fans though? Which NBA team’s fans make away teams not want to come back because they can’t hear themselves calling out plays? That distinction goes to the fans of the Golden State Warriors. The fans sell out Oracle Arena and play the role of the sixth man, lifting their own team and making the opposing team’s night a frustrating experience.

Golden State is generally not thought of a hotbed for basketball. They don’t have a rich history like the Los Angeles Lakers or Boston Celtics. The area is well-known for possessing the most geniuses per square mile as it is the technology capital of the world. It may not have a storied team history, but Oakland has a rich basketball tradition producing the likes of Jason Kidd, Gary Payton and Damian Lillard. Some of the best point guards have come out of the Bay Area but they haven’t won a division title since 1976.

GS warriors fans oracle arenaEntering the 2006-2007 season, Golden State had not had a winning season since the 1993-1994 season. They hadn’t even won more than 38 games. In 2006-2007, led by point guard Baron Davis, the Warriors won 42 games and snagged the eight seed in the West. They played the top team in the West, the Dallas Mavericks, who were heavily favored. The Warriors had other ideas though. Each home game, Golden State fans packed Oracle Arena to full capacity and 19, 596 screaming fans were wearing gold shirts and waving towels. The decibel levels were off the charts, the opposition couldn’t hear themselves and the crowd noise rivaled that of a rock concert. The Warriors upset the Mavericks in six games and Oracle Arena was reborn.

They didn’t get back to the playoffs until two seasons ago and were led by sharpshooter Stephen Curry. When starting power forward David Lee went down early in game one, the Warriors chances were diminished. However, they rallied around their fans and defeated the Denver Nuggets in six games again. Had it not been for some late-game struggles on the road in the second round and Golden State could have made it to the Western Conference Finals.

At a Lakers game, it’s more of a celebrity affair. Countless movie stars, directors, musicians and other celebrities line the courtside at Lakers games. However, the crowd doesn’t play a huge role in Los Angeles. In Oakland, the crowd plays a huge role and the area geniuses don the Warriors colors and cheer on their team in hopes of providing that distinct homecourt advantage.Chris M.

The Ups and Downs of Lockout Ball

The long-hyped sophomore Point Guard monster for the Washington Wizards, John Wall, is finally coming into his own this season. Through the first 11 games of the season, he averaged 13 points on an atrocious 34% shooting. In the last 5 games, Wall is shooting 41% (only marginally better), but stuffing the stat sheet with 24 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal and 1 block. Except for the bad shooting, those stats are among the elite of basketball. If he keeps it up, and eventually gets his shot to fall, John Wall could be looking at his ascension into the conversation for best Point Guard sooner rather than later. The effects of the lockout seem to be wearing off finally for Wall and others who have had a historically slow start to their seasons.

On January 20th, Portland Trail Blazers LaMarcus Aldridge went off for 33 points, 23 boards and 5 assists, making it a candidate for performance of the year so far. Orlando Magic Dwight Howard may have something to say about that, especially in light of recent rumors saying that Los Angeles Lakers Andrew Bynum was the best Center in today’s NBA. The same night that Aldridge went off for what may have been the best game of his career; “Superman” Dwight Howard annihilated Bynum in a showdown in L.A. Howard posted 21 points and 23 boards of his own and held the injury-prone Bynum to just 10 points and 12 boards in a victory over Bynum’s Lakers. If Howard continues to travel around the league and routinely slaying opposing Centers, Howard will not only solidify himself as the best Center without debate, but he may play himself out of being traded. Therefore, it would be a double-edged sword for Howard. On the season, he is averaging 20 points and 16 boards with 2.3 blocks. Over the past two weeks, though, he has upped those numbers to 23 point and nearly 19 boards, which is simply uncanny. The only other player who compares in the post-lockout NBA is Minnesota Timberwolves Kevin Love. On the season, Love is putting up 24 points, 14 boards, 2 threes, but all on 41% shooting, which is extremely low for a big man. Over the past two weeks, Love is shooting even worse: 36%, meaning the effects of the lockout are still lingering for Love, who was pimped by Yahoo Sports incessantly at the beginning of the season for losing weight and staying healthy during the lockout.

Other top big men with absurd shooting problems include Amar’e Stoudemire (41%), Chicago Bulls Joakim Noah (42%), Dirk Nowitzki (45%), David West (45%), DeMarcus Cousins (44%), and ex Los Angeles Clippers Chris Kaman (44%). Owners of any of these players in fantasy basketball are probably pulling their hair out right now, especially those who drafted Dallas Mavericks Dirk Nowitzki or Amar’e Stoudemire in the 1st round of their drafts. In real life, neither player has really contributed many wins for their respective teams to go along with their low shooting percentages. The New York Knicks are just 5-12, good for 10th place overall in the Eastern Conference, which is not an enviable position for a team consisting of Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. Similarly, the defending champs are also struggling. They at least have a winning record at 10-7, good for 7th place in the West. The story of the young season so far might be how under the radar the Philadelphia 76ers have flown. They are 11-5 and getting quiet contributions from their whole roster. John Wall’s Wizards team is easily the worst team in the league right now, sitting at 2-14. However, if Wall’s recent statistical uptick is any indication, the Wizards have no place to go but up.
