Following their 15 point win over Cleveland last night, the Chicago Bulls are 3-3 this season and in second place in the Central Division behind the undefeated Indiana Pacers. Derrick Rose is starting to shake off the rust from sitting out a whole season and is averaging 14.4 points per game, a number that will surely increase as his minutes go up this season. The Bulls record so far is misleading as two of their losses have come on the road against the two best teams in the Eastern Conference this season, the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers. Chicago Bull tickets are already seeing a boost since opening night as prices on the secondary market have soared past the $200 mark and are up 10%. Here’s a breakdown of this week’s remaining games’ ticket prices:
11/15 @ Toronto Raptors – Avg Price: $102 | Get-in Price: $13 | Weekly Trend: -35%
On Friday night the Chicago Bulls travel to Toronto to play the Raptors at the Air Canada Centre. Toronto is 3-5 this season and have played great defense so far so fans should expect to see a lower scoring game in this matchup.
11/16 vs Indiana Pacers – Avg Price: $259 | Get-in Price: $59 | Weekly Trend: +6%
The 8-0 Indiana Pacers are currently the best team in the NBA and as such will make this division game against the Bulls must watch television. This game will be a great test to see how Rose can play when he is guarded by George Hill in a game that both teams will look to win. Tickets for this game are averaging $259 per seat, 31% above the Bulls home avg.
11/18 vs Charlotte Bobcats – Avg Price: $118 | Get-in Price: $21 | Weekly Trend: -7%
In their next game the Bulls stay in Chicago for this contest versus the Charlotte Bobcats. Kemba Walker is developing into a fine young player and is starting to show glimpses of the star potential he had while leading UConn to a National Championship a few short years ago. At 40% below average, Bulls fans can find tickets for this game heavily discounted at only $118 for an average seat.
11/21 @ Denver Nuggets – Avg Price: $89 | Get-in Price: $8 | Weekly Trend: -8%
Rounding out the Bulls schedule for the week ahead are the Denver Nuggets who have struggled to find their groove this year after winning a franchise record of 57 games last season. Ty Lawson can score at will and will need to do just that if the Nuggets are to going to stop the Bulls from stampeding over them.
