First Los Angeles Clippers Game

My First Los Angeles Clippers Game

After years of watching NBA games, staying up late (while being in Europe) during the playoffs to watch the greatest of the greatest fight against each other in conquest of the Larry O’Brien Trophy, the time had arrived. 7.30 p.m. Kings at Clippers. That was the game that was about to start on a fine Saturday afternoon in LA. That was about to become my first live experience in the courts of the NBA.

My friends and I arrived a little over an hour before the start of the game and I insisted in going straight into the legendary Staples Center, aiming to make the most out of my first, exciting visit and of course having the time to buy some official Clippers clothing from the team boutique.

We parked in a parking space close by the Staples Center and started walking the Staples Center. Here comes the first shock.
This building, in which some of the best players to ever pass from the NBA had played was standing in front of me. Beautiful with the nice purple colored windows and the red “Staples Center” sign above, it was becoming bigger and bigger and more marvelous as we approached.

Doc Rivers LA Clippers We quickly passed the security control, grabbed a bunch of Clippers schedule mouse pad giveaways and headed straight inside the arena. The feeling was just unbelievable. Haven only seen some European basketball arenas, the difference was obviously chaotic from the first second. Some pictures and a few looks around the arena later, we headed towards the alleys, where we had hot dogs and cola (huge hot dogs, really). The Clippers boutique was right outside our gate so I stopped by to buy some Clippers T-Shirts and an amazing white Clips hat. I also grabbed a Paul Pierce jersey for my friend, who has been a fan of him all the way back from his Boston days. Prices in general were very reasonable for LA and US standards and I wouldn’t mind paying even more to get the official and amazing gear I purchased from the team boutique.
That’s because I didn’t know when and if I’d have the chance to visit the arena in the future.

We entered the arena about 30 minutes before the game and there was yet another shock. Our seats were one of the best and really comfortable by the way, a bit above court-side and slightly towards Clippers bench. It was Halloween so lots of fans were dressed up with cute costumes and the director made sure the central giant screens showed the best appearances (the team handed gifts to the top ones, too).

Clippers vs KingsThe two teams entered the court. And there came yet another shock. Some of the stars I’ve been watching playing the game for so many years were right in front of me, ready to start the game. DeAndre Jordan, Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Paul Pierce and Lance Stephenson from LA, Rajon Rondo, DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay from Sacramento’s side. And of course, the man in the middle for the Clips, the maestro Doc Rivers. My eye couldn’t have missed the huge rafters on our left, which Rivers had ordered getting changed to Clippers ones (instead of the default-Lakers ones) when the Clips were playing at home.

The pre-game show is a show. An amazing one. It’s how you imagine it plus more. The atmosphere is just amazing, urging you to cheer and rejoice. And I can’t image how better it becomes during playoffs.

Tipoff time. DeAndre got the first tip and the Clippers were headed towards their first offense. It was just amazing seeing the action live, watch the moves in real-time, have the full vision of the court and feeling the reactions from the crowd (yes, not having TV-commentary helps, too). It’s just totally different when you see the live action, it’s as great as it gets !

Chris Paul LA ClippersThe action in the court was really fun. Dunks (the drive of the game came from Lance Stephenson), alley-oops from DJ and Blake Griffin, some amazing shots and in-traffic shots from both sides. Gay and Rondo really got it going, from Sacramento’s side. The experience was just as perfect as I imagined it. The more you love the game, the more you understand it and what it takes for those 10 players on the court to stand where they stand, the more lurid it becomes. And for me it was. Having Steve Ballmer a few feet away from us added something extra to the entire experience, too. What more can you ask for?

Half-time arrived before I knew it and we headed out of the arena for a catch up with friends. And as you may see sometimes on TV, we, too, were late returning for the third quarter. The security guard at the gate didn’t allow us to grab our seats until a whistle, which I found very clever as the distractions for other fans get minimized that way.

During some timeouts, the amazing cheerleaders, who had previously given a fantastic show, were throwing Clippers T-Shirts and guess what, I managed to grab one after it bounced-off some other people in front of me. Had to fight for it. I was so happy! And then, in the next timeout the Clippers Gatling Gun made its appearance. Of course, instead of bullets it was firing Clips T-Shirts again. Amazing, simply amazing.

Blake Griffin LA Clippers GameDuring another timeout, instead of cheerleaders some kids-dancers gave a show and I couldn’t tell if they were real pros or just little kids from school. They were so good. As mentioned above, it’s not just a game. It’s both a show, one of the best you can see and a game, the best you can see.

Come late fourth quarter, the game was very close and the Kings tried to hack-a-Jordan only to receive a T. That shifted the game and a few JJ Redick made free throws later, the Clips received a victory. Happy end for my first NBA game experience.

After the final whistle, my friends started heading towards the exit, although I didn’t want to leave the arena that quickly. I was so amazed that despite the about 15,000 fans present, there were zero queue lines, no overcrowding and it even took us a few meetings to get out of the building. As a matter of fact, one positive experience came after the other before, during and after the game.

We ended our evening with drinks and fun in a local bar in the LA Live area, just behind the Staples Center. And guess what, it was, again, stunning !

Special Thank You to all the guys at Barry’s Tickets for making my dream come true and helping me see my first Los Angeles Clippers game ever! I am looking forward to going to a Clippers December Game and will 100% get my Clippers Tickets from you guys!

Seven Must See Clippers Games

Seven Must See Clippers Games

Seven Must See Clippers Games

Clippers Tickets discount codeThe Los Angeles Clippers will play 41 games at the Staples Center the following season. And in those 41 games, there will be lots of excitement, drama, tough play, highlights and much more. Now, it would be best if you can attend all 41 home games. However, if you absolutely must choose, we present you seven Clippers games that are absolute must-attend.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Detroit Pistons, November 14
Price Range $35.00 – $935.00
Many will ask why an Eastern conference team with low chances to end up in the playoffs qualifies as a must-attend game. Well, the Pistons feature one of the best young centers in the league in Andre Drummond, and seeing him going against DeAndre Jordan is an absolute joy to watch. The Pistons will also be a team that will try to push the pace and run the floor, surrounding Drummond with shooters from almost every angle. If that is not enough, you also have the young, up and coming Reggie Jackson, point guard that finally has his own team. Can he rise up to the challenge of going against CP3? View all Clippers vs Pistons Tickets.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors, November 19
Price Range $93.00 – $557.00
This will be the second game that the actual champs and Clippers meet. The first time will be on November 4 at Oracle Arena. And you can bet that there will be some drama between the two teams, especially after the saga regarding Doc Rivers comments whether the Warriors were lucky or not to win the title. Last year, the Warriors beat the Clippers 3 out of 4 games, and this year, the Clippers will look to improve that record. And when it comes to drama and provocations, the Clippers now have Paul Pierce in the lineup. The Clippers will also be looking for revenge as they lost their first meeting against the Warriors at the Oracle Arena 108-112 on Wed November 4th. View Clippers vs Warriors Tickets.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder, December 21
Price Range $95.00 – $1,760.00
With Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook healthy, the Thunder will again be one of the teams aiming for top spot in the West. The Clippers have the same goal, and this will be the first game between two heavyweight teams in the West. Who will emerge victorious? The Clippers or the Thunder? The Clippers now have more players that they can throw at Kevin Durant, including Lance “ear-blowing” Stephenson. View all Clippers vs Thunder Tickets.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Los Angeles Lakers, January 29
Price Range $100.00 – $2,310.00
The Clippers and the Lakers will play on Christmas, but the Lakers are the “home” team in that game. The January game will be the first time that the Clippers will qualify as the host. The city rivalry between the Lakers and the Clippers might finally be evenly matched this year, with the Lakers also boasting a good team. In past years, either the Clippers or the Lakers were the dominant team. This year, however, the Lakers might end up in the playoffs. And if that isn’t enough, watching Kobe Bryant in what might be his last season in the league is an added bonus. View all Clippers vs Lakers Tickets.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Chicago Bulls, January 31
Price Range $78.00 – $1,760.00
The Bulls are among the contenders in the Eastern Conference, and this year, they will try to push the pace a little more. With a new coach who is more offensively minded, the Bulls might present a different challenge. They have a plethora of great players that they can throw at the Clippers. Not that the Clippers are slouch. The duel between these two is as evenly matched as possible, which only amplifies the potential for a dramatic game. View Clippers vs Bulls Tickets.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors, February 20

The second game the Clippers will host against the Warriors is the third game between the division rivals. With the season in its second half, we will have better sense of where the teams are positioned. This will be the second game the Clippers play after the All-Star break, having previously welcomed the San Antonio Spurs. View Clippers vs Spurs tickets.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers, March 13
Price Range $124.00 – $2,88.00
Lebron James makes his lone visit to Los Angeles, and he will be welcomed by some of his old rivals in Paul Pierce and Lance Stephenson. The Cavs are arguably the best team in the East, and if you want to become a champion, you need to beat the best. There are countless of duels and matchups worth watching, including the point guard duel between CP3 and Irving, the PF duel between Love and Griffin, or the duel at the center position between Mozgov and Jordan. Fasten your seatbelts and enjoy! View Clippers vs Cavaliers tickets.

Cavaliers February Schedule

Cavaliers February Schedule Ticket Average Up 17.94%

Cleveland Cavaliers February Schedule ticket average breakdown.

It seems like the Cavaliers are finally figuring things out. But don’t say it out loud, you might jinx them. After all, the Cavs already had a run like the one they are experiencing right now. But then they went south. The key to Cavs improvement has been the play of LeBron James. King James is playing at an MVP level after taking some time off. Kyrie Irving is also playing better and better, and he looks more comfortable in the offense. The defense is still an issue, but as long as the Cavs can outscore opponents, they will be good in the regular season. The playoffs are a different story. For now, let’s break down Cavaliers February schedule and their most important games.

The Cavaliers are second in the league in attendance according to ESPN. With 27 games they are at 555,174 with an average of 20,562 per game. This is up 26.98% from their average in 2013. The Chicago Bulls passed them for first place with an average of 21,894 per game with 24 games played.

In December of 2014 the Cavaliers Ticket price average was $240.00 per ticket and starting out the New Year with no Lebron and average play by the Cavs their ticket price average had dropped 18.75% to $195 per ticket. With some sold play and being 10-0 in their last ten games the fans have started to feel the Cav’s might actually be a sold playoff team with Lebron back. Cavaliers ticket prices are averaging $230.00 per ticket a 17.94% increase since Jan 6th 2015.

Here is a look at the top Cavaliers February Schedule of games!

Clippers @ Cavaliers Quicken Loans Arena February 5th
Starting price $34 | Average price $75
The first test for the Cavaliers February schedule is the Clippers. The team from LA lost the first matchup between the two in a high scoring game. But Chris Paul will certainly have something to say now, especially after so many experts and critics forget how good he is. Kyrie Irving might be in for schooling. On the other hand, the LA Clippers lack a small forward, which could spell trouble given the fact Cavs have James in the lineup. View Tickets

Heat @ Cavaliers Quicken Loans Arena February 11th
Starting price $62 | Average price $161
This will be the first game Miami plays in Cleveland since LeBron came back to the Cavs. In his first game in Miami, his Cavs lost, so LeBron might be prepared for some cooking and serving. The Miami Heat are not playing particularly good lately, but that was the case for their duel in Miami as well. View Tickets.

Cavaliers @ Bulls United Center February 12th
Starting price $116 | Average price $200
This will be the duel everyone is looking forward to. The Chicago Bulls and the Cavaliers were supposed to be head and shoulders above everyone else in the East. So far that hasn’t been the case. Regardless, their duels are epic. The Chicago players do not like LeBron. After all, his Miami Heat teams crushed the Bulls dreams few times. The Cavaliers already won two duels with the Bulls this season. This could be the most important game for the Cavaliers February schedule. View Tickets

Cavaliers @ Knicks Madison Square Garden February 22th
Starting price $116 | Average price $245
Carmelo Anthony might not be playing in this game due to an injury. That is, if he decides to shut himself down for the season. However, this is all about the Cavaliers and LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Both players have had some epic games in the Garden, and this will be their chance to shine. The last time the Cavs played at Madison Square Garden, they won 90-87 in a close game. Added bonus, J.R. Smith and Shumpert will come back to New York for the first time since signing with the Cavs. View Tickets

Warriors @ Cavaliers Quicken Loans Arena February 26th
Starting price $52 | Average price $96
The Cavaliers will welcome the best team in the West for the first time this season. When the Cavs played in Oakland, the Warriors routed them 112-94. This will be their chance for revenge. There are so many interesting match ups in this duel. It is hard to choose one. Curry versus Irving is definitely the one most people want to see. The Warriors could be the second biggest game in the Cavaliers February Schedule. View Tickets.

So after a game or a concert, there are plenty of things to do in the Downtown LA area.

Since Los Angeles concerts and games get out roughly around the same time, the list is going to apply for food/drink options, then some club or bar options. The LA Live area and Staples Center as you may know are across the street from one another, so getting to any of these places will be from the same area. Directions are by car.

LA Live Area)

Yard House – This place has a HUGE selection of beers on tap. From Tangerine Hef to a standard Bud Light, you can get beers in large yard size glasses, also food is served. Prices are moderate and it is usually busy on weekends.

ESPN Zone – For the sports fanatic, you could presumably watch the game here if you aren’t at the stadium, there are plenty of TVs, decent bar, with decent food. Its a great place to watch Lakers, Clippers, LA Kings, Dodgers, Angels or other sports games with friends.

Conga Room – Cool for drinks/dancing, its upstairs in the LA Live area near Nokia. Will get packed weekends and after concerts. Its a Latin themed bar, you need to be dressy, you can’t wear jerseys or baggy clothes, they are strict on the dress code.

Lucky Strike – Not just regular crappy bowling, but upscale bowling. This location in particular has a much bigger bar than other Lucky Strikes. They even have bottle service (not worth it). You’ll need reservations on weekends so if you time it well it could work. The bowling is expensive, but its great for a group atmosphere (mainly because of price). The drink prices aren’t bad for your location, its dark inside, but overall fun, I’ve been here a couple times and it was a good time, service usually sucks, get your drinks at the bar.

Club Nokia – The club basically inside of the Nokia Theatre. Some tickets will give you access to it. It is a very cool place inside, I went after a show and it was fairly busy. The style is ultra-modern, again you need to dress for this place. Think of the movie Tron in Los Angeles, modern.

Katsu-ya Sushi – Somewhat pricey and delicious upscale sushi. You won’t find a classic California Roll, but you’ll be very happy you tried it. Menu is shown up front, it is very much worth it. I’ve been to the one closer to me, not this particular location, but its about the same menu.
Downtown)

Big Wangs – Chain place, great for cheap wings and a great selection of beers that will rotate specials throughout the night. They have karaoke some nights as well. Good atmosphere, casual, service pretty good and not expensive. (Grand Avenue, 5 minutes from LA Live)

The Edison – Serious dress code, but basically a club/bar that is in an old power plant (hence, the Edison), expensive, but always packed and always a good time, artsy feel. (2nd and Main, 8 minutes)

The Standard Rooftop Bar – Not sure who you’re going with, but if its a date, this is awesome. Atop The Standard Hotel (Where they filmed Get Him to the Greek), gives you an awesome view of surrounding LA, its expensive, wear something warm during the winter, it can get nippy. They also added a biergarten recently for German beer samples and sausages etc.(South Flower and 6th, 8 minutes)

Library Bar – Very cool decor, cheaper option than The Standard which is nearby. Lots of people come here after work, so very suit-like feel. Big selection of mixed drinks that are strong and good. I went here on a weekday, so the calibur of busy may not be typical, but it was pretty busy. (8th street)

Hotel Figueroa Lounge (The Fig) – Cool lounge at the base of the hotel. I’ve been here during the day, sadly not at night, but it is a warm atmosphere, had a typical drink so I can’t rave about it. It is right near Staples Center, great location and if you get too wasted, just book a room (not the cheapest). (Figueroa Street)

Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles – No bar here, just delicious chicken n’ waffles. Good if you have a food craving after a show or game. Its less than 15 minutes from Staples. Very cheap, very good, no fancy dress code, closes at midnight if I am not mistaken. (Pico and La Brea, just take Pico, west, 15 minutes or less)

The Gorbals – A little different, this place is for food and its open late, they have a bar as well. This place will be a bit hard to find, its inside of a building which appears to be pretty shady and it kind of it. Inside try the matozah balls wrapped with bacon or the latkas, both are delicious. The drinks are moderately priced. The chef won Top Chef apparently. I was here on New Years, music was good, service good as well. (501 Spring Street, remember, its inside of a building, bottom floor, 10 minutes, considering you’ll get lost)

Broadway Bar – This is from a recommendation of a friend who lives right in downtown. 2 story place, good happy hour prices, would be good after a game. Dress code, but I’m told they wont hassle, but sports gear is a no-no. outside has a patio, good beer prices as has an old feel to it. (Broadway, 5 minutes)

Wurstküche – German Beerhall/Sausage place. Really cool, huge selection of beers, usually very busy. You can try rattlesnake and many other types of pretty odd sausages. German and Belgium beers on tap, picnic style tables medium price (E 3rd Street, 10 minutes)

Seven Grand – Another recommendation. This is a whiskey bar but serves a nice selection of beer as well. Casual dress code, the price can be a little high depending on what you get. Amazing atmosphere, great staff, amazing selection, very fitting for the area. Its upstairs with a patio, pool tables. (Seven and Grand, clever right? 8 minutes)

The Pantry – Food only, 24/7 classic restaurant, been open forever, they’ve never closed their doors. Cash only, very good food any time of the day (or night). (South Figueroa, 2 minutes)

 

We also stock tickets for all Nokia Theater events as well.
