How much does it cost?

The tickets for a Brooklyn Nets match are a little bit cheaper than NY Knicks ones.
It depends on each game and the teams they are playing against.
Don’t wait to buy your tickets in the next weeks. If you purchase your ticket ‘asap’ your possibility of find cheap tickets in good spots are better.

How well can you watch the game from the cheapest seats?

It is true that if you have court side seats you will enjoy the match more and you will see the match better.
Now, the important thing is to be there! Even if you are seated in the highest seats, you can still experience the vibe and feelings that only a NBA match can offer you.

I'd rather save some money for shopping and restaurants than paying a $500 ticket. Each one of us has its own priorities… So if you love basketball, don’t hesitate and purchase court side tickets.

What’s better: to watch a NY Knicks or Brooklyn Nets match?

Feel free to make your own decision:
The Knicks are the New York team, and its house is the mythical Madison Square Garden. The Madison Square Garden had witnessed performances of big stars like: Madonna, Michael Jackson, The Beatles… and Boxing fights with Mohammed Ali, Mike Tyson…

The Brooklyn Nets were created in 2012. They became famous in part thanks to the Hip Hop star Jay Z. They play at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn; it is new with a better infrastructure than Madison Square Garden.

The Madison Square Garden is located in New York’s heart, next to Penn station, and the Barclays Center is in Brooklyn, 25 minutes away from Times Square (by Metro). It's not that far away from Manhattan.

Well, it is up to you. You can see an emblematic team or a trendy one.

What is the best time to be there?

I recommend that you arrive 1 hour before the match starts, so you will have the time to look for your seats, and take a look around. There are bars, restaurants, souvenir shops and activities to do before the main event.
You can’t miss the moment when the players come in, the national anthem… It is a wonderful show!

How will they send me my NBA tickets?

When purchasing, you will see there is a fee for sending your tickets by mail (USPS) or email. It's cheaper to buy e-tickets!

What could happen if the postal service sent to me the tickets before my departure, while I’m in the US, or if it’s too late?

The indicated date is a limit day to be sent. In most of cases, they’ll send it to you 2 to 4 weeks before the day of the event.
So, if you are in another country or overseas, and you didn’t get your NBA tickets before you departure to NYC, you should contact the Ticketnework call center, and ask for the tickets via email. They always fix situations!
A lot people have been thru this situation, so no worries!

Can you buy tickets at the Madison Square Garden or Barclays Center directly?

Yes, at their box office.
Purchasing tickets on the same day, or pretty close to the event date can result in not finding anything available, and in case you find some tickets, they will be more expensive.
Last minute tickets can go up to $350 USD (it depends on the teams playing), or if there are some $60 USD tickets available, it could be separate seats, and this is not recommendable if you are with your friends, family, girlfriend or boyfriend.
I like to have everything prepared before heading to NYC and have no “surprises” when getting there. It's up to you!
