The Brooklyn Nets, winners of two straight road contests, will continue their trek through the Western Conference during the early parts of March before returning home for five home games in March. Brooklyn’s playoff aspirations have disappeared, but its March slate features exciting home games against the Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers. Brooklyn’s fellow tenant at the Barclays Center, the New York Islanders, will also spend the majority of the month on the road, but will host the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers in March.  Fans traveling to the games can either utilize mass transit or can find great deals and locations for Barclays Center parking.

Ticket information for each Nets’ home game, according to TiqIQ, is presented below.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Brooklyn Nets | Get-in: $10

The Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets have not lived up to expectations this season, but expect a high-paced battle between these two teams. Milwaukee won two early season meetings, so expect Brooklyn to play with a sense of urgency.

3/15/16 Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets | Get-in: $21

Brooklyn and Philadelphia have split their first meetings, but expect both teams to play with emotion in this Atlantic Division battle. On the primary ticket market, the cheapest ticket price is $21, which is comparable to the cheapest ticket on the secondary market.

3/22/16 Charlotte Hornets vs Brooklyn Nets | Get-in: $11

The Charlotte Hornets have won two straight games against Brooklyn, but expect a spirited effort from Brook Lopez as he battles against Al Jefferson.

3/24/16 Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Brooklyn Nets | Get-in: $61

LeBron James and Co. will head to Brooklyn in search of their third straight victory over Brooklyn. Cleveland tends to draw a star-studded crowd, namely Jay-Z and Beyonce, so expect to pay higher ticket prices for this showdown.
 
Indiana Pacers vs. Brooklyn Nets | Get-in: $24

Paul George and the Indiana Pacers will also be seeking their third victory over the Nets. George has rebounded nicely after missing last season, but expect Thaddeus Young and Co. to slow him down early in the game.

Ticket information for each Islanders’ home game, according to TiqIQ, is presented below.

3/8/16 Pittsburgh Penguins vs. New York Islanders | Get-in: $33

A potential playoff match-up will commence when Pittsburgh travels to the Barclays Center. These two foes have only played one time this season, but will play three more times before the playoffs. On January 2, Pittsburgh defeated New York, 5-2, in Pittsburgh. Sidney Crosby scored twice in the victory, so slowing him down will be the key to the game. On the primary ticket market, the cheapest ticket price is $31,which is comparable to the cheapest ticket on the secondary market.

3/14/16 Florida Panthers vs. New York Islanders | Get-in: $21

Fans attending the showdown between Florida and New York will receive an Anders Lee bobblehead figure. Florida has won the first meetings against the Islanders, so expect New York to play with a sense of urgency against one of its potential playoff foes.

3/21/16 Philadelphia Flyers vs. New York Islanders | Get-in: $18

New York has won two of its first three meetings against Philadelphia, a team that will be battling for its playoff lives during the last two months of the season. These two teams tend to play smash mouth, physical games, so expect a drawn out, tough battle between these two foes.

3/21/16 Ottawa Senators vs. New York Islanders | Get-in: $12

Ottawa and New York have split their first two meetings, so expect a close battle between two teams jockeying for playoff positions. Defenseman Erik Karlsson has five points in two games against New York, so keeping him in check will be a key to victory.

3/29/16 Carolina Hurricanes vs. New York Islanders | Get-in: $12

Currently, Carolina is not a playoff team, but they have won their first two meetings against New York. These two teams will be a brief ‘home-road’ series in late March, so expect New York to seek revenge in this match-up.

3/31/16 Columbus Blue Jackets vs. New York Islanders | Get-in: $12

New York has won all four its meetings against Columbus and will be seeking a season sweep of the lowly Blue Jackets. A win seems likely for New York, so fans traveling to see another Islanders victory should seek out some great parking options when considering New York City parking.
