10. Lakers at Thunder

Average Asking Price: $462.86
Venue: Chesapeake Energy Arena
Date: Dec. 7

"Not known for being a huge basketball town, Oklahoma City has grown to be one of the toughest places to play in the NBA," Matcovich said. This relatively new status has helped them join the Nets, the Lakers and the Knicks as one of only four home teams to appear in the top 10.

"Fans obviously get extremely excited and open their wallets when other great teams come to town," he said. "With (Kevin) Durant, (Russell) Westbrook, Kobe (Bryant) and Dwight Howard all MVP candidates, fans are willing to pay on average $462 to see this star power."
