OKLAHOMA CITY HOLDING NBA PLAYOFF PREGAME CELEBRATIONS IN SCISSORTAIL PARK; GAMES ANNOUNCED

News 9 - April 18, 2024 6:38 am

The Oklahoma City Thunder clinched the first seed in the NBA playoffs, and tickets go on sale Monday morning.

Having been five years since the last home playoff game in Oklahoma City, the city is now preparing for a pregame festival before the first game next week.

A spokesperson with the Thunder said playoff tickets will only be sold online through Ticketmaster starting Monday, and though prices vary, some tickets start at $20.

The Thunder says prices will vary — some Loud City seats start at 20 dollars.

If you miss Monday’s’ opportunity, there will be resale tickets on Ticketmaster, which the Thunder says is the best way to avoid scammers.

“If anyone tries to sell you a ticket on the street, walk the other way,” Thunder vice president Dan Mahoney said. “That’s not how to buy a ticket in… ever, but certainly not in 2024.”

Ticket sales go live at 10 a.m., but before you get to the game, Oklahoma City is planning something special for fans looking to have some fun before the game.

Thunder UP in the Park, taking place across the street from the Paycom Center in Scissortail Park, will open up for a free pregame festival where 20 pairs of tickets will be given away.

The fun begins three hours before the game, and ends 30 minutes before tipoff.

The schedule for the first three games of the Thunder‘s opening playoff series have been scheduled, the NBA announced.

Game One will be at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday in Oklahoma City, and Game Two will be the Wednesday after at the same time.

The next two games will be played on the road.

Game 3 will be at 2:30 p.m. on April 27, and Game 4 will be on April 29, although the time for that game has not been decided.

Also, the list of Oklahoma City’s potential opponents is now down to two after the four Western Conference teams played Games One and Two of the play-in tournament Tuesday night.

In Game One, the Lakers beat the Pelicans to earn the seventh seed, and in Game Two, the Kings beat the Warriors, eliminating the Warriors from the playoffs.

The Kings will now play the Pelicans on Friday to battle for the eighth seed in the Western Conference, with the winner coming to face the Thunder.
