Ticket prices plummet with transit issues, power outages

Brooklyn Nets

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy and with transportation options limited, ticket prices for Knicks-Nets have dropped precipitously.

With the fear that Thursday will be a traffic nightmare around Barclays Center, and many fans stuck at home with power outages, demand for Nets-Knicks tickets in the secondary market has dropped precipitously in the past few days. Darren Rovell reports...

Just five days ago, the cheapest ticket on the secondary market was $201. By Wednesday morning, a fan could buy a seat for $144, according to TiqIQ, a resale ticket-market search engine. On popular resale ticket site StubHub, a lower-level center court seat that couldn't be had for less than $800 last week can now be snapped up for $550 as of Wednesday morning. The average ticket purchased for the game on StubHub has plummeted 31.5 percent since last week, going from $371 to $253 per seat.

How this will affect the fan mix on Thursday remains to be seen.
