Tracking Timberwolves Demand-based Ticket Prices -- March Update

Here's the final update to my season-long analysis of the Timberwolves demand-based ticket prices (as of March 12). Check out the Google Spreadsheet, if you'd like to dig deeper.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, there hasn't been much movement in ticket prices during the past month. The (perhaps) key game versus the Suns on March 23 is the only game seeing a change greater than 2.4%.

Tickets to the rescheduled game (that was to have been played in Mexico City) against the Spurs are finally on sale, at reasonable prices, considering that San Antonio currently has the NBA's best record. Their run of greatness (recently well documented here) is truly amazing.

If it is wrong to wish the Wolves could be as consistently (and even as boringly) great as the Spurs, then I don't want to be right.

Game Opp Feb Avg Mar Avg Average Increase Changed Price Levels
Sun, March 16 Kings $68.64 $70.27 2.4% 3
Sun, March 23 Suns $70.27 $73.18 4.1% 3
Wed, March 26 Hawks $81.91 $81.91 0.0% 3
Fri, March 28 Lakers $139.09 $141.09 1.4% 3
Mon, March 31 Clippers $117.82 $118.45 0.5% 3
Wed, April 2 Grizzlies $82.18 $82.45 0.3% 3
Tue, April 8 Spurs N/A $80.36 N/A N/A
Wed, April 9 Bulls $119.55 $120.00 0.4% 5
Fri, April 11 Rockets $117.55 $119.00 1.2% 4
Wed, April 16 Jazz $68.18 $68.27 0.1% 6

Here's your bargain matrix (though StubHub likely has better prices than buying direct at this point):

Teams Bad Medium

Good

Less Expensive Kings, Jazz Suns
Medium Expensive
Hawks Spurs, Grizzlies
More Expensive Lakers Rockets, Clippers, Bulls

Given their gutty performances over the past month, I upgraded the Bulls, who have gone 10-4 since my last post from being a bad team (at 26-24, but difficult to watch) to good, simply for the will they have shown to win games under very difficult circumstances. I greatly admire Thibs and Joakim Noah for competing without the injured Derrick Rose and the trade of Luol Deng.

Again here's the link to the Google Spreadsheet.
