With five basketball games all on national TV, the NBA takes center stage on Christmas Day.
In preparation for the holiday, no-fee secondary ticket marketplace, TickPick, compared prices for the full slate of games. Right now, the Warriors-Lakers primetime headliner in Oakland is on pace to be the most expensive Christmas Day ticket of all-time, with an average listing ticket price of $885 — which is also the most expensive game of the entire NBA season.
The cheapest ticket available for the game is currently $248.
Here’s how prices fare for each game (please note, these are all-in prices since there are no added fees on TickPick)
- Warriors vs. Lakers: $885
- Knicks vs. Bucks: $543
- Celtics vs. 76ers: $473
- Rockets vs. Thunder: $226
- Jazz vs. Trail Blazers: $161
