NBA Playoffs Heat Up

Let’s talk NBA. The Heat are the favorites, and it’s not just because they’ve won the last two consecutive NBA titles. They’re leading ticket sales as well, and they do it not only at home, but on the road, and in a big way. Below are some numbers that tell the story.

  • Miami Heat playoff sales are up 11% year over year on StubHub.
  • Away sales increase by 102% on average whenever the Miami Heat come to town.
  • The Heat have been the highest selling away team on StubHub every year since 2009 and were the highest selling away team by far this year, more than doubling the second place team – the OKC Thunder.
