As of late, the injury gods have not been kind to the Celtics. First Rajon Rondo is gone for the season with a torn ACL along with Jared Sullinger who has a bad back and needs surgery. Now, less than a month later it’s Leandro Barbosa, also with a torn ACL, and Paul Pierce with a pinched nerve. Luckily, these injuries have not seemed to heavily impact the success of the team so far; the Celtics have won eight of their last nine games. However, the injuries are beginning to take a noticeable toll on the price of Celtics home game tickets. For example, according to data provided by SeatCrunch, the average price of tickets to the Celtics game against the Miami Heat on March 18th dropped from $262 to $240 just a few days after Rondo’s injury. The average price for their game against the Knicks on March 26th has dropped about $20 since the Rondo injury as well. These changes in price are based mostly around the Rondo/Sullinger injury dates. With the additional injuries to Barbosa and Pierce, one can only speculate that prices will continue to drop. This is good news for Celtics fans looking to attend a game. As mentioned before, though some of the Celtics star power may not be present, there is no indication that they are so depleted that they can’t continue to win games. For the upcoming home game against the Golden State Warriors, SeatCrunch.com has tickets at an average price of $109, and for as low as $42. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to purchase tickets this season, there might not be a better time than now.
