Miami Heat fans hoping to get a seat the Eastern Conference Finals hit ticket outlets in droves Thursday afternoon when tickets went on sale at 2 p.m.
Individual game tickets for the home games were on sale, but because some people get the first crack at playoff tickets, only a few thousand for each game were available.
Most of the available tickets were in the upper bowl of the arena, with some scattered in the lower bowl.
TIcket prices, at least the face price on the ticket, ranged from $93.35 to $248.55 when they went on sale Thursday.
"I also play basketball in Germany, so it's a dream to watch the Heat here live," said Heat fan Christian Sengner. "When we get tickets."
The Heat will play the winner of the Indiana Pacers vs. Washington Wizards series, which the Pacers currently lead 3-2. Game 6 of the Pacers/Wizards series is scheduled for Thursday night.
If Indiana wins, Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals would be on Sunday in Indianapolis. If the Pacers lose and the series goes to Game 7, the earliest the Eastern Conference Finals will start is Tuesday, May 20.
The Heat punched their ticket to the conference finals with a 96-94 win over the Brooklyn Nets in Game 5 Wednesday night.
For Heat fans, it's not about who Miami plays in the Conference Finals, it's about the entire White Hot Heat experience.
"It's really energetic and fun and all the fans are on the edge of their seat," said 13-year-old Nigel Yarde.
"I am a LeBron fan. I love him. He's a great player," said Idalia Arias. "They're going to win it all again. Again. He's the best. He plays with a lot of passion and that's what we want."
