EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--Individual regular-season game tickets for the Los Angeles Lakers will go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday.
Tickets will be available online at ticketmaster.com, by calling (800) 4NBATIX, and at all TicketMaster locations. Tickets will not be sold at the Staples Center box office.
Tickets are limited to four per person per game. Approximately 1,000 tickets will be available for each game, according to John Black, the Lakers vice president of public relations.
Black predicted that "probably between 20 to 25" of the 33 games will sell out Saturday.
He said he thought the most popular games would be the March 4 game against the Miami Heat and the March 11 game against the Boston Celtics.
The Lakers have sold out their past 234 regular-season and playoff home games, including over the past four seasons.
The Lakers have four sets of ticket prices. Tickets are priced from $10-$265 for the five regular-season games designated as "value games" and the Dec. 19 pre-season game; $25-$280 for 14 games designated as "select games"; $80-$450 for seven "premium games"; and $150-$900 for the games against Miami and Boston.
Ticket prices for the premium and marquee games are unchanged from last season, while all other prices increased by approximately 4 percent, Black said.
The ticket price increases are the result of increased costs, mainly to the team's payroll, Black told City News Service.
