NBA Finals Game 5 ticket prices: Nuggets history comes at steep price

The chance to watch the Denver Nuggets make history on Monday night will come at a steep price.

The cheapest ticket for Game 5 of the NBA Finals at Ball Arena available on Ticketmaster as of Saturday afternoon started at $1,146 — or around the same price as a pair of Air Jordan 1s on StockX, an online sneaker resell company.

That ticket price is just as high as the seat it is attached to. The buyer would sit near the rafters in section 310, row 15.

Tickets available on ticket seller SeatGeek are cheaper, but not by much. Seats in section 368, row 15 were priced at $983, but that was as affordable as it gets.

Fans might have to redirect a few rent payments to sit closer Monday. The cheapest seat in the 100 sections on Ticketmaster as of Saturday afternoon was $1,965, while the most expensive seat inside Ball Arena — section 118, row 16 — was priced at $50,000. A handful of lower bowl seats were still for sale Saturday at prices as low as $1,634 on SeatGeek, while courtside seats started north of $10,000.

Denver put itself on the cusp of claiming its first-ever title after defeating the Miami Heat, 108-95, in Game 4 on Friday night in South Beach to take a 3-1 series lead. Two-time MVP Nikola Jokic recorded a double-double, 23 points and 12 rebounds, while forward Aaron Gordon went off for 27 points, seven boards and six assists. Guard Bruce Brown provided a spark off the bench with 21 points.

With Game 5 in two days, ticket holders will have two options: Keep their ticket and potentially witness Nuggets history or resale it for a huge payday.
