Memphis Grizzlies Playoffs Games the Hottest Tickets in Town

MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - The first Memphis Grizzlies home game in the NBA Western Conference Semi-Finals sold out within minutes. That doesn't mean you can't get in FedExForum, but it will cost you.

There's nothing quite like FedExForum on game day. When you add playoffs to that, it's electric.

"People have Grizzlies fever! It's just like it was a couple years ago and FedExForum is the place to be and we're looking for a great couple games this week," said Dennis O'Connor, VP of Ticket Sales for the Grizzlies.

When tickets went on sale Monday, the line wrapped around the promenade. It was a near instant sell out.

"Within minutes, we had a couple different presales, our allotment for that went in 2-3 minutes, then we went on sale at noon for the general public with what was left." O'Connor said, "Within 10 minutes or so we blew through them."

If you don't have tickets, you haven't missed your chance entirely, but resale prices won't be easy on your pocket book. Seats that were originally $30 dollars are now on StubHub.com for a minimum of $60.

Seats that are $139 as a season ticket holder will cost you $1,000 on StubHub.com; floor seats are going for $2,500.

At this point, the only way to avoid that cost is to become a season ticket holder. The Forum reserves select seats at season ticket prices for fans who buy a package for next season.

According to O'Connor, "Our season ticket holders have the best deal, will always have the best deal in comparison to single game buyers and also in comparison to what you have on a secondary market."

There are select seats available for Monday night's game, but those are expected to be sold out by Friday.
