8. Boston Celtics at Lakers

Average Asking Price: $480.04
Venue: Staples Center
Date: Feb. 20

When the Celtics play the Lakers, tickets are always in high demand. According to Matcovich, this is because their contests are seen as rematches of the 2008 and 2010 NBA Finals.

"The two teams are arguably the most storied franchises in the NBA," he said. "Fans are willing to shell out lots of money to see the historic franchises battle."
