Many factors point to the fact that the Golden State Warriors are a championship contender. One of the more reliable is that they rank in the top 10 in both offensive and defensive rating. If defence wins championships, GSW has the best defence in the league this season. But their offence is also improved and is now more team-oriented, with fewer isolations and more assists. Steve Kerr has managed to install a new culture, and till now, he is a premium candidate for coach of the year, while Curry is in the conversation for MVP.
The Warriors not only have the best record currently in the NBA they are beasts at the Chase Center with a 15-1 record. They are ranked 7th in home attendance with an average of 19,596 per game (100%) which is a 35.72% increase since their low in 2001 and up 8% from their 2010 attendance average of 18,207 and up 1.15% from their 2013 attendance average.
Warriors Opening game tickets price averages have climbed as well. In 2001 the average Warriors ticket price was just $40.00 per ticket, in 2010 it was $65.00 per ticket, 2013 -14 season saw secondary ticket prices at $80.00 ticket now in 2015 Warriors Ticket prices have risen 57.53% to an average of $115 per ticket placing the Warriors second only to the Cavaliers whose prices on the secondary market have dropped 20% in 2015 since the absence of Lebron James.
Golden State Warriors Top 5 Games Remaining at the Oracle Arena.
Mav’s @ Warriors, Oracle Arena
February 4, Starting price $56, Average price $75
The Number one offence in the league visits the Number one defence in the league. In their first dual this season, the Warriors held the Mavericks under 100 points, becoming one of the few teams to pull that off. But that was before Rondo joined the Mavs, and now they have a player that can defend Steph Curry. View Warriors vs Mavericks tickets for the Oracle Arena.
Spurs @ Warriors, Oracle Arena
February 20, Starting price $91, Average price $155
The Spurs are the champions, and the Warriors want to be “the sultan instead of the sultan”. They will have to prove themselves versus the best. Golden State has already lost this season to the Spurs at home, and if they want to boost their confidence, a win will go a long way. View Warriors vs Spurs tickets for the Oracle Arena.
Clippers @ Warriors, Oracle Arena
March 8, Starting price $99, Average price $117
Simply put, these two teams do not like each other. From their playoff matchups to their regular season matchups, every duel is a special story. Every time they play each other, the game is a must-see TV. Aside from the individual matchups like Curry versus CP3, the game features lots of other duels worth watching. Another reason for watching is that every game is a high scoring one with a highlight reel that can top the NBA’s top 10.View Warriors vs Clippers tickets for the Oracle Arena.
Hawks @ Warriors, Oracle Arena
March 18, Starting price $42, Average price $66
The Atlanta Hawks are the hottest team at the moment, and their offence is blitzing. Golden State is number one in defensive rating this season. Before Andrew Bogut’s injury, the team allowed less than 90 points per 100 possessions. With him sidelined, the Warriors allowed 97 points, but they are still number one in defensive rating. The Hawks are 7th in offensive rating, and Kyle Korver is probably the one player that requires more attention when he is near the 3pt line than Steph Curry.

Grizzlies @ Warriors, Oracle Arena
April 13, Starting price $41, Average price $120
The last before the last game of the season for Golden State, they will battle the Grizzlies for what might be then, a higher seed for the playoffs. The two teams have been in a dog race, back and forth for the top spot in the West since the season started. Given the fact that the race is extremely tight, the last game can have huge value. Especially since everyone expects OKC to get the 7th or 8th spot, and some higher seeds might look to avoid playing the Thunder in the first round.

Warriors @ Hawks
Feb 6th Philips Arena
The Atlanta Hawks are currently first in the Eastern Conference with a 27-8 record and is on a six-game win-streaking and is 9-1 in their last ten games. With a home record of 15-3 in the Philips Arena, it will be a good test for the Warriors.

This could be a preview of the NBA finals the way both of these teams are playing. Atlanta Hawks vs Warriors tickets for the Philips Arena meeting are averaging $75.00 per ticket.
