The Memphis Grizzlies had a fantastic run in the playoffs last season stretching all the way to the Western Conference Finals before losing to the Spurs. This season the Grizzlies have had a tough time finding their identity as a team as they are near the bottom in the league in points and rebounds per game. The lone bright spot has been Memphis’ defense which has been one of the best teams allowing only 96 points per game, good enough for 7th in the league. With their two best players sidelined for the time being, Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, prices for Memphis Grizzlies tickets prices have taken a hit, falling 9% in the last week to an home average of $89. This week’s games are even less expensive:
12/11 vs Oklahoma City Thunder: Avg $38, Get-in $4, 59% Below Grizzlies Avg
The average price for when the Thunder visit Memphis has fallen drastically due to the absence of Zebo and Gasol and now sits at $38. In the past week alone tickets for this game which normally would’ve been one of more expensive have dropped by 59% with some as low as $4 to get into this game.
12/13 @ New Orleans Pelicans: Avg $46, Get-in $2, 59% Below Pelicans Avg
The Grizz then travel to the New Orleans for this game against the Pelicans who have been one of the best scoring teams in the NBA. That makes the key to this game the Memphis defense and if they can hold the Pelicans to below their average of 103 points. Tickets are averaging $46 after falling by 21% since last week and have an extremely low Get-in of $2.
12/15 vs Minnesota Timberwolves: Avg $34, Get-in $3, 63% Below Grizzlies Avg
Kevin Love and Kevin Martin have been the lifeblood to this Timberwolves team as both are averaging over 20 points on the season, giving this Minnesota team one of the most potent offenses in the league. Grizz fans can Get-in to this game for as little as $3 but will find tickets averaging 63% below normal at $34.
12/17 vs Los Angeles Lakers: Avg $116, Get-in $19, 27% Above Grizzlies Avg
With Kobe Bryants return to the Los Angeles last night the Lakers are once again one of the most exciting teams to watch in the NBA. This has resulted in tickets for this game going for 27% above the Memphis’ home average at $116 with a very reasonable Get-in of $19.
