The Heat play the Thunder tonight at 9 pm est

This is the first time since 1998 that a Western Conference team, aside from the Mavericks, Spurs, or Lakers, have made it to the Finals. The likes of Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, and Lebron James are hoping tonight – and the rest of the series – end better than last year.

Considering the cast of All Stars and future Hall-of-Famers, it should come as no surprise that tickets are fetching top dollars. Tickets are ranging from $400 to $500 on the secondary market. Some front row seats are being priced upwards of $2,000. However, if you are set on attending the NBA Finals, don’t worry – there are still relatively great deals around $300. This isn’t too far off from Eastern Conference Finals, at which Heats tickets sold for an average of $234 on the secondary market.
