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, despite how bad the teams are, 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 legendary Madison Square Garden, tickets should always be purchased at Ticketmaster, which is the official ticket and resale website of the NBA, the prices start from $ 90-100 approximately in the games against the teams with the least pull of the league, in places with good visibility but where you are practically playing the roof of the pavilion.

Of course, due to the demand is quite normal that the tickets are sold out, and that you have to go to resale. Be careful because the Ticketmaster website does not differentiate single tickets with resale tickets, so it is always convenient to search other websites and compare prices before giving tickets.

Here are several options:

  • Go to resale, which as we said before also manages Ticketmaster, to get your tickets for the game.
  • Try to get your tickets on other resale sites, I recommend you also look at Superboletería o Hellotickets, which is another website that I have used at some time to buy NBA tickets or concerts in New York, although it is usually a little more expensive than the previous ones for the same locations.

Right now it's more difficult and expensive to get tickets for the New York Knicks than for the Brooklyn Nets, but if you're going to go once in your life to watch an NBA game and you like basketball, is not it worth paying a little? more and go see the NBA to one of its temples and one of its fetish teams? I think so, but there everyone who chooses what suits them :-)
