Ticketmaster has two tickets for Game 4. Section 210, Row 5, Seats 21 and 22. All told, the tickets will cost me about $45 apiece.

Are those decent seats? Will I get a decent view of the game? Would I be better spending that money somewhere else?

Please respond ASAP... I want to snap those up before they're gone.

Kind of high for my taste, but in the view will be no problem.

I think you can do better, but if the games are selling out fast you might need to snatch them.

That is high up but I'm sure you'd kick yourself for not doing it later since it's Reggie's Last Stand. _I_ would probably do it if I could get away.

Dangit, they're already gone. Section 223, Row 9, Seats 6-7?

Peck, if you think I can do better, please show me how. I'm totally ignorant of these things.

Dangit! "Our system is down for routine maintenance."

What the HECK?

Peck, we're on slightly different wavelengths. There's only 1 pair of tickets there for under $100 apiece.

I've checked a few other scalpers for you but most of them are 100 or more each. I did find a couple of 80 tickets but they were both up as high as yours.

Get the ticketmaster tix. probably, I don't think you'll find much cheaper but I will keep looking.

If you don't need a pair, and only need a single, buy them on the street from a scalper.

Last year, the first round was dirt cheap and scalpers couldn't give them away. I got a single at mid-court in Club level for something like $25.

But this year, with the Pacers not expected to advance very far, the first round may be a little higher.

I wouldn't hold my breath on that. It's Reggie's last few games and tickets will sell out and be premium this year , IMHO any seat at a playoff game is better than no seat at all.

All right, clock is ticking. Section 225, Row 13, Seats 7 and 8. After fees and whatnot, it's $45 apiece.

I'm going to buy these in two minutes unless someone has a better idea.

As a balcony regular, I say just get in the building. You'll be fine........

You're only gonna be three sections down from me. I'll try not to get too angry too loudly... If you see a mob of people all throwing popcorn and beer into one area, you'll know where I am.

Is actually suprisingly well-behaved at games

Anthem,

Hit EBAY right now and look for some tickets. I usually buy from the users Larrybird*33 or Kirby*34 but there are others with 100% positive feedback.

Here's a link for 2 tix, section 227 row 11 for $69.99 - Buy it Now (this guy has a few more auctions right now):

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=16122&item=6525972126&rd=1


BTW, I just bought 4 tickets for game 4, section 10 Row 1 for a grand total of $187.50. That's including shipping and it's still below face value.

Dang! I was too late.

Well, if anyone else wants some tix hit the link in my post above or just do a search for: Indiana Pacers tickets.

C'mon guys, row #5 and row #9 of the balcony aren't all that high, relative to most balcony seats.

And if the alternative is *not* being at a playoff game at all, then those are EXCELLENT seats.

Was it just me or was CFH already in late-playoffs form last night. That game was loud and I expect, as long as we're not down 0-3, Saturday night's game to be extremely loud.

Yeah, I'm row 9, but seats 1-2. Am I going to regret being on the aisle?

What's the view like from Section 210?

Does anyone know when tix will go on sale for Game 6? That's the one I want to go to (have school/work during Games 3 & 4... :mad: ).

I was in Section 211 last night and it wasn't a bad view at all.

Historically, they wouldn't go on sale until both teams had two wins in the series.

But if we're up 2-1, they may go on sale then because Game "C" could also be the first home game of the second round.

I just bought section 208 Row 15 in the good old Balcony.

Does anybody know how many rows are in the balcony?

I was literally in the very top row last time... I'd like to improve on that.

Game 6 will go on sale (if necessary) the day after the game would become necessary to be played. I.E. if the series is 3-1 Celtics and we win game #5, Game #6 will go on sale either right after the game or the next morning. Usually right after the game on Ticketmaster.com. That's how it has gone in the past.
