SIXERS FEVER has hit the secondary ticket market.
As the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Celtics switches to the Wells Fargo Center, fans appear eager to be in the house for one of the biggest - and most welcomed - surprises this season.
As of late Tuesday, over 5,200 tickets were purchased on StubHub, the highest number of tickets sold for a NBA playoff semifinal series thus far. The closest was Sunday's Game 1 between Miami and Indiana, which amassed over 3,500 tickets sold. In addition to Game 1 in Boston, which had over 3,400 tickets sold, other games this Sixers-Celtics matchup has already trumped are: Tuesday's Clippers-Spurs Game 1 (2,800), Monday's Lakers-Thunder Game 1 (1,700) and Thursday's Heat-Pacers Game 3, which has had over 1,500 buyers thus far.
