Courtside Tickets for Knicks-Nets Opener Going for $8,100

The NBA schedule makers did the right things by placing the Knicks in Brooklyn to take on the Nets for each team’s season opener. New York is buzzing right now, and this game is why. But if you want to be at the game and sit courtside, be prepared to spend a pretty penny.

Tickets to the Nets’ first regular-season game at the new Barclays Center against the crosstown rival Knicks are commanding an average of $800.87 a pop on StubHub and other secondary-market sites.

The sold-out Nov. 1 contest is the hottest ducat for a Big Apple sporting event since the Yankees won the 2009 World Series, says Chris Matcovich of TiqIQ, which tracks secondary-market ticket prices.

It even surpasses the $675.43 ticket average Madison Square Garden saw for a Knicks-Mavericks game in February, when Jeremy Lin was still a Knick and “Linsanity” reached its peak.

The Nets-Knicks game is running as high as $8,100 for courtside seats normally priced for $1,500, and the cheapest seats were selling for $217
