    unfortunately that's probably true, and just makes my blood boil thinking about it. nevermind that we have a better record and imo a better team. Oh well for those of you able to go to the game if we end up winning, any idiot wearing a knicks jersey make sure you shake their hand and thank them for coming out to support the pacers

    Oh brother. Here we go.

    Half empty kinda stinks, but half full of "Opponent"/"insert star player" fans is definitely worse.

    Not $$$ wise.

    At the start of the month we tried to get this game as part of our package, but it was already sold out then.

    There is a SLIGHT possibility that this is actually a game popular with PACER fans due to the rivalry.

    I know, fantasy, but hey...

    I think there has been a sequence of events that could help us up our attendance. We whooped Philly on ESPN, we traded for a fairly well-known player in Barbosa, and of course we are playing against Linsanity. I hope the first two will carry over and help boost our attendance beyond just playing the Knicks....

    I highly doubt that. Sure it's a Sat night in March, doesn't mean we'll sell out or come close. It's Lin/Knicks. If it were the Bucks, or Suns, or any team that isn't very good, it's not a sellout.

    The first Bobcats home game came VERY close to a sellout.

    You guys would know better than I, but in the case of someone like Melo or Lebron or Kobe, is it really a case of their fans showing up. Or is it that local fans buy tickets to see those guys, but truly hope the local team wins?

    When they wear the other team's jersey, they are cheering for the other team.

    However, fans of the local team actually DO pick to come to certain games because of who the opponents are, so there might be some people with that outlook.

    Was already sold out in the balcony three weeks ago, when we tried to get tickets to the game.

    I'm glad it was sold out in advance, I was kind of concerned about the impact the IU-VCU game could have on the attendance....It will definitely be a big pro-Pacer crowd..of course there will be some Knicks' fans, but even when miami or the lakers come and draw a sell out, 90% of the crowd is rooting for the Pacers.. Only time that has not been the case was the playoff game last year when Bulls fans from Chicago/Northern Indiana bought tickets quicker for the weekend game than Pacer fans.. And of course years ago when BIRD (celtic) fans use to come to MSA wearing green (mainly when Pacers were bad)... that use to drive me nuts...

    Well that's not quite true, unfortunately. When Miami or the Lakers come and get a sell out or close to it it's about 50/50. Actually I'm pretty sure the Miami game several weeks ago didn't quite sell out, but this Knicks game did several weeks in advance, right after Lin caught fire. It's gonna be 50/50...maybe 60/40 in their favor. The thing about it is that since it sold out so quick, the resale market has been able to jack up prices for the first time in years. There will be a fair amount of season ticket holders who will have decided to profit off that. And those people who bought their tickets right after Lin caught fire bought them to see him. It's been that way in very city they've gone to lately. It won't be pretty.

    ......will definitely not reflect actual attendance now, especially amongst the 40% or so of the seats sold to Pacer fans.

    That is cool we sold out for tomorrow, I don't even care if there is a Knicks fanbase there that bought a good deal of tickets. They are paying good money to watch the Pacers take on their team. It could be worse. I think tomorrow will be a much better contested game.
