Kobe-less Lakers see value drop in tickets in February

Kobe Bryant is done for the season for the third year in a row, but Los Angeles Lakers fans still have plenty of reason to check the team out live at the Staples Center as the 2014-15 NBA season winds down. While the team isn’t likely to rack up wins to end the year, they should continue to develop some solid talent and build momentum that could bleed into the 2015-16 NBA season.

On top of that, there should be value to be had in Lakers tickets, as the average price should drop. Tickets are already just over $168 on average and depending on the matchup, can be had it a considerably lower rate. Let’s see just how much value there is to be had as we break down the cheapest and most expensive games left in February according to ScoreBig:

Most Expensive – 2/22/2015 vs. Boston Celtics | Avg: $229.36 | Get-in: $38

An old rivalry ignites again when the Boston Celtics hit the Staples Center later in February. Both of these teams are struggling and we know L.A. won’t be heading to the playoffs, but Boston has some faint playoff hopes and both teams continue to evaluate talent. That means this one carries some mild weight for the Celtics, but the real beauty comes in the lack of defense. Fans looking for a good time and a good amount of scoring between two historic teams will want to consider checking this Lakers/Celtics clash out live.

These teams matchup well, too, giving a young and developing Lakers bunch a decent shot at adding a win to their record. Jordan Clarkson and Wayne Ellington should continue to get solid run and provide a nice spark, while rookie point guard Marcus Smart will also be fun to watch for Boston fans. Lakers vs. Boston Celtics tickets average nearly $230, with a get-in of $38.

Cheapest – 2/10/2015 vs. Denver Nuggets | Avg: $142.99 | Get-in: $15

Lakers vs. Nuggets tickets drop way down when Denver comes into town, as they has been atrocious and neither of these teams have the playoffs on the brain. That’s fine, though, since both of these Western Conference foes like to push the tempo of the game and should combine for an exciting, high-scoring affair. L.A. has a solid shot at escaping with another win here, too, while fans can pay $26 less than normal to catch the action live. Ty Lawson adds some star power to this one, as well, and will be the player to watch in this showdown.
