    Default The Playoff Tickets Thread

    Now that the initial shock and awe is over, its time for us to fill Conseco Fieldhouse in support of our Pacers. As you all know Chicago is pretty close, especially when you consider Northern Indiana is half Chicago. We cannot have our home team seeing a sea of red in their 1st trip to the playoffs for this team in 5 years.

    Tickets go on sale today (4/7/11) at Noon, which leaves little time for the pre-sale access to Indiana residents only. Link below will get you that access if you haven't already:

    http://www.nba.com/pacers/news/pacer...ding_2011.html

    Let's hear where you guys are sitting, if you've ever been to a playoff game in Conseco. Do you remember the last time you were there because it was what, 10-20 years ago? All I could afford was balcony tickets but I'll yell as loud as I can!

    GO PACERS!

    Yes there's a 72 hour window. But the pre-sale access does end at noon today. After that the pickings will become more slim. And though you can profit if you resale your tickets to a Bulls fan you must perish if you choose that path.

    My last playoff Pacer game was Game 1 of the 2004 Eastern Conference Finals vs. Detroit. Epic game to be there for.

    Out of curiosity does anyone know how it's going so far? I've definitely got mine.

    There are a lot of tickets left as of now. From what I've seen you can get something from every section. Hopefully that starts to change over the next couple of days.

    Is the first round a best of 5 or best of 7? Then, would it be a 2-3-2 or 2-2-2-1 or 2-2-1 format?

    We've been on the the phone trying to get our tickets upgraded. They stuck us up in the balcony and the middle of a row 3. Thats not happening. Row 3 has those black bars, and my knees always hit them. Worst seats in the balcony. Wanting to upgrade to section 2 or 19 in the fanzone.

    For the pacers vs Bulls or the whole first round?

    I do know some of the first round. One trick is to see if there are any events already scheduled at Conseco or the United Center.

    The first game of the series (for all series) will be Sat 4/16 or Sun. 4/17. There are 4 games on Sat and 4 games on Sunday.

    Then game two of each series are played over Monday, Tuesday or Wed.

    Game #3 of each series can either be Thurs, Fri, or Saturday - there are usually 2 game #3's on Saturday and 2 game #4 on Saturday.

    Game #4 can be Saturday Sunday or Monday.

    Then they bunch the games up - theory being that several series end in 4 or 5 games. But they schedule 4 games a night starting with game #5.

    Game #5 - Tuesday and Wednesday

    Game #6 - Thursday and Friday

    game #7 Sat. and Sunday.


    Let me check something

    Kester had this in a thread from last night

    Some info from Wikipedia on playoff schedule, and TV coverage:

    Postseason

    The 2011 NBA Playoffs will begin on Saturday April 16, and will conclude on Monday May 30 (latest possible date for the Eastern Conference Finals). The NBA Finals will begin no later than Thursday June 2, and end no later than Thursday June 16 (unless both conference finals end in either four or five games, which would push the Finals start date to Tuesday May 31). ESPN will begin their playoff broadcast on April 16, and will continue every Friday and Saturday thereafter, with the Sunday-Thursday schedule reserved for TNT and NBA TV. ABC will continue broadcasting early-round playoff coverage every Sunday afternoon, with select Saturday afternoon broadcasts. The first round playoff coverage will be non-exclusive except for ABC-covered games, in which local sports networks (e.g. Fox Sports Net, Comcast SportsNet) may still air the game in their home market. TNT will air the Eastern Conference Finals while ESPN will air the Western Conference Finals. The NBA Finals will be shown on ABC. Nationwide radio coverage will be on ESPN Radio for select playoff games, the entire Conference Finals and NBA Finals.

    I'd love to grab some tickets and be there but I live/work in South Bend and can only go on a weekend (Friday night-Sunday games) and I'm unsure on how the schedule will work. I'd hate to get Game 3 tickets and have it be on Thursday or Game 4 tickets and have it be the following Monday. Is either game guaranteed to fall on the weekend?

    Looks like we'll probably get game 3 Thursday and game 4 Saturday if I were to guess especially with travel time between Chicago and Indy being small.

    Game 1 Sunday, Game 2 Tuesday, Game 3 Thursday, Game 4 Saturday. If we had a 2 day break for travel could see us being Friday and Sunday too.

    I hear ya. Not that its good to ever be broke, but I still picked a bad time to be broke. Bills + expensive trip to Chicago last weekend = balcony seats.

    Game 4. section 3, row 8. Closest to the tunnel the players come out of. Should be sitting across the tunnel from Larry. I'm pumped. I've never been to a playoff game and I hope there are hardly any tickets left for the Chicago fans come Sunday.

    I am on a layover traveling on vacation but just had my sister(in Indy) grab me a pair about 30 rows back in section 2 for game 3. Glad they clinched it last night since I won't see a game for the next week.

    it has nothing to do with that. it has everything to do with two things: Arena availability and TV. So if you really want to poredict when the games might be, look to see if there are any evnets scheduled at Conseco or United Center. (are Blackhawks in the NHL playoffs, is the schedule for that set? are there any concerts at either venue, anything else scheduled.

    OK, I did a little research and according to this website, the Bulls first two playoff games are Saturday and Monday. It indicates 7 PM for both and that is possible, but I would put very little weight in the times listed. But I would say the dates are probably pretty accurate. I mean there is a 50/50 chance the first game is on Saturday and if the first game is Saturday there is a decent chance the second game is on Monday. So I would say this is what it will be - subject to change of course.

    Assuming that is correct, that would mean the Pacers first home game will probably be Thursday night and if that is so, then I would guess the second home game would be Saturday, although Sunday is still possible.

    Purchased my tickets for game 3. Hoping for a Friday or Saturday night game! Last playoff game I attended was on the Pacers run to the finals in 2000. It was the series against the Bucks.
