As the clock ticks down to tip-off at tonight's Game 6 of the NBA Finals, prices for Warriors tickets on the resale site TickPick are also ticking down a bit, but the average list price this morning was $5,822.
It is, as you surely know by now from the steady stream of coverage in local media, the very final game the Warriors will be playing at the old Roaracle in Oakland before moving to the Chase Center in SF in the fall. And if/when the Dubs win tonight, they head to Toronto for Game 7, which promises to be dramatic for fans across two nations — both the spoiled Bay Area fans who have watched the Warriors fight their way to Finals glory three times in the last four years, and the Toronto fans who have never participated in the NBA Finals.
As the SF Business Times reported Thursday morning, the most expensive tickets on offer were going for $12,713, for seats five rows back from the court. And CBS SF reports that someone paid just shy of $70,000 for a pair of court-side tickets, thought to be the most expensive price ever paid.

Now the list price and what they actually sell for, after bidding, are two different things. But still, the average purchase price as of this morning for Game 6 seats was just over $2,000, so not cheap!
Speaking to reporters, Klay Thompson said, "We're not even thinking about the future. We're just thinking about enjoying this last show at Oracle we're about to give our fans. And I expect our fans to be the loudest they have ever been, especially in the name of Kevin [Durant], and bringing his type of spirit he would bring to the fight and the competitiveness."
