How crazy was Linsanity during this regular season? Consider this:

Tickets for Game 1 in Miami are selling for half as much as the February 23rd matchup tickets, which occurred during the height of Linsanity.

A representative from, a ticket information company that tracks online ticket prices on the secondary market, sent over the following results as of 11:30 a.m. ET:
  • The average price for Game 1 Saturday is $226.13, which is the 12th highest average priced home game for Miami this year
  • Compare this to their game in Miami on 2/23....Average price was $523.55 with a get in of $93
  • The current get in price is $28
  • The average price for the series is $510.71
  • The average price for Heat home games is $339.15, which is 43.02% lower then the average at MSG ($595.21)

What's more stunning: that Game 1 tickets are selling about $200 less than Linsanity tickets, or more than 10 regular season games were more coveted than Game 1?
