One of the usual questions in the chat is about how to watch an NBA game in New York. The NBA season begins in October and, unfortunately for New York teams, ends in late April, which is when the NBA season ends and the playoffs begin.

What NBA teams play in New York?

In New York, two NBA teams play: the mythical New York Knicks, who play in Manhattan at the not least mythical Madison Square Garden, a fetish place for basketball and boxing fans, and Brooklyn Nets, who play in the brand new and spectacular Barclays Center in Brooklyn, a very modern pavilion that is well connected by subway with the rest of New York.

How to get tickets for the NBA in New York?

Tickets for the NBA in New York are quite expensive and there is a lot of demand, so It is convenient to take the tickets as far in advance as you can get. If you want to go see the Knicks at the mythical Madison Square Garden, prices start at approximately $ 90-100 in matches against the teams with the lowest pull in the league, in places with good visibility but where you're practically playing the roof of the pavilion.

Of course, due to the demand it is quite normal that the tickets are sold out, and that you have to go to resale, which is allowed in the United States. Be careful because the official ticket sales website, Ticketmaster, does not differentiate single tickets with resale tickets, so you should always look at other websites and compare prices before buying tickets.

Therefore, I recommend several options:

  • Look at the tickets in the official resale, manage it Ticketmaster and there you will find tickets for the vast majority of matches.
  • Try to get your tickets at other resale sites, where you can get better tickets or better prices than Ticketmaster, I recommend you before buying tickets also look at Hellotickets or in Superboletería, in Spanish, or TicketNetwork, in English, there are more websites for ticket resale but these are the ones I have ever used to buy NBA tickets or concerts in New York and they have always worked very well for me.

Right now it is more difficult and expensive to get tickets for the New York Knicks than for the Brooklyn Nets, but if you go once in a lifetime to see an NBA game and you like basketball, isn't it worth paying a little more and go see the NBA at one of its temples and one of its fetish teams? I think so, but there everyone who chooses what suits them best :-) Now, this season the Brooklyn Nets have reinforced a lot and are serious candidates to fight for the NBA ring, so you are likely to see best games at the Barclays Center.
