Grizzlies tickets rank 3rd cheapest in NBA

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Grizzlies fans are getting the best bargain in basketball.

According to a study by VividSeats, Memphis ranks 26th in the NBA in median ticket prices for home games, tied with two other teams.

The Grizzlies are the only team currently in the playoff race in the bottom five.

The two cheapest ticketed teams are the 76ers and Pelicans, who both sit near the bottom of the standings in their respective conferences (the 76ers are last in the NBA).

The Grizzlies' median ticket price in 2015-16 comes in at $54, tied with Minnesota and Washington, two teams with losing records.

The two teams with the highest ticket prices should come as no surprise. The Lakers ($300) are in the midst of a terrible season, but fans are showing up in waves to see legend Kobe Bryant play his final season.

Meanwhile, the Warriors ($285) are well on pace to break the all-time record for best season by an NBA team. The Warriors sit at 55-5; the all-time best record is 72-10 by the 1996-97 Chicago Bulls.

Third on the list is Oklahoma City, well behind the Warriors at $185.

Meanwhile, Grizzlies fans are paying nearly $100 less than Knicks fans, who pay hefty amounts to see a team that sits 12 games under .500 and has little chance to make the playoffs.

The Grizzlies, with a 37-24 record and a firm hold on the fifth seed in the Western Conference, are providing the best bang for your buck in the NBA. The Grizzlies next game against Phoenix is priced at a median range $43.
