The 2019 NBA Finals are heating up and ticket prices only continue to climb through the roof.

According to Darren Rovell, Sport Business Reporter at Action Network, a new per seat record has been set for the Finals.

One diehard fan has spent $101,015 USD (that’s $135,759 in Canadian dollars) on a pair of courtside seats to Game 4 between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors on Friday.

Not only is that nearly double what someone paid for a pair of courtside seats during Game 1 in Toronto last week, it’s also enough to buy a luxury car.

As the Golden State Warriors take the series to Bay Area for the next two games, tickets on StubHub are also on the rise.
