Don’t really know where to put this...but does anyone know when they’ll start selling playoff tickets? I’m thinking I need to make a trip down to Arizona and catch a playoff game.
They already sent a notice to season ticket holders about it. They are opening it for us on the 15th. I would assume they open to everyone else on the following Monday (17th).
Appreciate it! I’ll keep an eye out that Monday
If I see something about it before then I will let you know. We have to decide by the 15th if we are going to buy all possible tickets for all possible games through the Finals. And prices have been jacked up a ton. It is close to the same prices I pay for half a season.
Ya I’m expecting them to be pricey, thanks!

I thought about the ticket price when my family was splitting a pair of season tickets just prior to the 7SOL era when I saw this a few days ago. 2 tickets and a parking garage pass ran about $200. According to that image, just the tickets would be $750 for the first round.

We’re at the half way mark of the final 16. Better than we expected for the first 8 don’t you think?

Who would have thought we would get 50 wins ... In a 72-game season.

Me. And it looks like we'll get even more.

I know I said 56 before the season started (I was trying to be the most optimistic one... but failed at that too!), and recently said we would only lose one more game. After last night and looking at our calendar, I feel like we are going to lose 2-3 more games. At the warriors and one or both of the Spurs games.

I hope we lose the last game of the regular season and never have back to back losses the rest of the year. ;)

So we alternate wins and losses, winning the first round in 7 and losing the second round in same?

I didn't say we lose every other game.

The Spurs kicked our ass. I have a feeling the Suns will pay them back on at least one of those games.

It is amazing to me how prophetic Monty's speech at the end of the Bubble.

"The next step is controlling your own destiny." (Not an exact quote)

And with only 7 games left in the season, we are completely in control of our own destiny.

What a fucking ride the last 9 months has been.

(Yes, it has been less than 9 months since the end of our bubble run)

3-4 gets us to 50 wins. 51 wins guarantees us a top 2 seed.

I just checked the schedule and do the Suns really play three games in three days to close out the season?

OK, it's just showing up weird on ESPN for me because the tipoff hasn't been set for the Spurs games.

Welp, we moved down to the 2nd seed in the West. Odds are that's where we'll stay by season's end. Still...not too shabby.

Or was that the one game you expected us to lose, Indy?

Gotta watch the Lakers now...in serious danger of dropping to 7...At the end of the day, you’ve got to beat the best if you’re planning to win a title...I just would be really disappointed if we lost in the 1st round and the Lakers are the only team that could beat us in round 1...I’d prefer to avoid that

The bottom half of the playoff bracket is super tight. Clips are way out of reach at #4 and are 6.5 games ahead of the 5 seed. Mavs and Lakers are tied for the 5-6 slots, and Portland is just 1/2 game back at #7. Then the Grizz are 3.5 more games back in the #8 seed, but the Warriors are only 1/2 game back of the Grizz. So a lot of seeds could change before the season is over.

There is a massive Lakers-Blazers game tomorrow night...Winner gets tie breaker and a lead in the race for 6th. No Lebron for LA

Speaking of that game, I was a little miffed that the Suns/Knicks weren't playing on ESPN. Then I scrolled down to see the Lakers/Blazers game is in the same time slot. Fair enough.
