The Atlanta Hawks are owners of the best record in the NBA with 23 games to go. They hold a one game lead over the Golden State Warriors, who have been alternating owning the best record throughout the entire season.
The Hawks are seven and three in their past 10 games and are riding a four game win streak. After dispatching the Milwaukee Bucks on the road, they beat the Dallas Mavericks at home by 17, held serve against the Orlando Magic at home by seven and went on the road to defeat the Miami Heat by two. March begins with the Hawks pitted against two of the better teams in the league, the Houston Rockets and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Philips Arena has been superb this season and the Hawks home record is partially a result of their support (27-4). Hawks’ tickets are some of the hottest on the secondary market right now, so let’s dissect March’s most and least expensive tickets for the Atlanta Hawks according to ScoreBig.
Most Expensive: 3/18/2015 | Golden State Warriors vs. Atlanta Hawks | Avg: $356.65 | Get-in: $67
The Golden State Warriors look to get revenge against the Atlanta Hawks on March 18th at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. The two teams met back in February at Philips Arena in Atlanta, where the Hawks won by eight points. We would be lucky if this game turned out to be a NBA Finals preview, as both are two of the more entertaining teams to watch in the entire sport. The Warriors haven’t lost many times this season, so you can bet they don’t forget the losses and will want to prove something to their fans during this March matchup.
Most Expensive Home Game: 3/6/2015 | Atlanta Hawks vs. Cleveland Cavaliers | Avg: $349.39 | Get-in: $102 | Parking in Atlanta: $6.50
The best team in the NBA will get another chance to prove it on March 6th when the Hawks host the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavaliers were streaking heading into the All-Star game, but have been tripped up by a Kyrie Irving shoulder injury. Even so, LeBron James will always be one of the most entertaining draws on the NBA season. The Hawks are 2-1 against the Cavaliers this season and are looking to finish up their season series on top.
Least Expensive: 3/11/2015 | Denver Nuggets vs. Atlanta Hawks | Avg: $ 45 | Get-in: $5
The least expensive average ticket price for a Hawks game in March is at the Pepsi Center in Denver on March 11th against the Nuggets. The Nuggets have struggled mightily in 2015 and the Hawks should be able to coast to an easy victory. Every team has to be aware of Ty Lawson though, who has average 16.2 points per game and 8.9 assists per game in his last nine games.
Least Expensive Home Game: 3/3/2015 | Atlanta Hawks vs. Houston Rockets | Avg: $113.90 | Get-in: $31 | Philips Arena Parking: $6.50
Philips Arena will host MVP candidate James Harden and the rest of the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night. The Hawks will have to prevent Harden from getting to the free-throw line, as he does more damage there than anyone in the NBA. He has over 150 more free-throw attempts than the player with the second most in the entire league. This will be the first of back-to-back home games for the Hawks to begin March.
The Hawks have become a must-see basketball team night in and night out. Whether at Philips Arena or on the road, the Hawks continue to be the NBA’s biggest surprise of 2015. All NBA fans can do now is wait to see if this dream season leads them to a NBA championship trophy.
