We have a new partnership with TiqIQ. If you buy tickets through them, you'll not only get good prices on tickets, you'll be helping The Brooklyn Game! (We get a small slice of the pie).

Home games for which there are still tickets include:

vs Detroit Pistons April 4
vs. Atlanta Hawks April 11
vs Orlando Magic April 13
vs Manhattan Knicks April 15

Plus there's tickets for playoff games against the Knicks (just kidding) on April 19, 21, 28 and if the Nets get to the next round May 5 and 7, 14, 16. And the last game of the finals (though the Nets may sweep in 4) is June 17. With playoff tickets, if you buy now and the Nets somehow dont make it, you get your money back. View all the options here.

So buy your tickets now.

 

Atlantic Yards Reports notes that the price of the cheapest seats will be rising next year from $15 up to $25, and $20 seats will go for $30.

The site's Norman Oder went on:

Remember, for years arena backers and builders promised at least 2,000 $15 seats "for" Brooklyn. In May 2004, Borough President Marty Markowitz, told the New York City Council, "It must be enjoyed by Brooklyn's working families."

“We have 2,000 seats priced at 15 dollars and under," Brett Yormark, the Nets/arena CEO, told RealGM 6/15/12. "It’s been our goal from day one to have affordable seating and pricing for anyone that wants to experience Brooklyn Nets basketball."

Oder did add, "Nets tickets are a bargain compared to Knicks tickets at Madison Square Garden."

 

Atlantic Yards Reports notes that while overall ticket prices for the Nets will rise 8 percent, the cheapest seats -- $15 -- will be rising to $25. A spreadsheet prepared by fan Arpit Vaidya for Nets Daily shows the increase for other tickets.

 

  • Steve Kyler lists Avery Johnson as a coach potentially on the hot seat: "If Johnson cannot deliver a winner, he could be out. The saving grace for Johnson is that owner Mikhail Prokhorov likes him a great deal. But with so much of the Nets’ future riding on being good from day one, the expectations for Johnson have more than doubled." Related: In yesterday's Prokhorov interview, he said he expects Avery Johnson to become a "living legend." No pressure or anything.
  • Barclays Center has brought more and more Manhattan yellow cabs to Brooklyn. With subways still down, they're going to need a lot tomorrow for opening night.
  • Speaking of tomorrow night: still over 1,000 tickets left on StubHub.
  • Barclays Center gets a 4.4 out of 5 rating and glowing review by Stadium Journey: "When you enter Barclays, it feels connected to the surrounding area of Brooklyn. Throughout the arena, music is blasting through the speakers with a Brooklyn theme in mind. Whether it is Faith Hill's "Brooklyn We Go Hard" or the Beastie Boys "No Sleep Til' Brooklyn", the anthems are present. The history of the Nets organization is also present; pictures, jerseys and memorabilia are placed all around Barclays to remind those in attendance that the team's foundation began elsewhere. Even though the team name is less than a year old, fans all around the venue have newly acquired team gear, making the New Jersey Nets, seem like a thing of the distant past."

 

At this point, is StubHub the only way to get tickets to Brooklyn Nets games?
