Harvey Watson missed out on purchasing two Cavs tickets but was pleased tickets for other high profile teams were available.

Approximately 1,500 individual game tickets for the Thunder’s first 23 home games went on sale Tuesday. Fans were limited to four tickets per game.


"Everyone wants to see LeBron (James) but we got tickets for Houston, Orlando and Phoenix,” said Watson, a Midwest City resident. "You take what you can get. It’s just like the Sooners. You get in line and wait for whatever tickets become available.”

Around 13,000 single-game tickets — about 40 percent — were sold Tuesday. The Celtics, Cavaliers, Hornets, Suns, and the season opener against Milwaukee, were the hottest tickets. Only limited single seats remain available for those six games.

Some tickets were pre-sold on Monday to select-a-seat applicants who were placed on a season ticket waiting list. Most seats are in the upper level ($10 to $35 price range) but a limited number of lower bowl seats are available.

"You’d like to get a little closer but $10 tickets are a great price,” said Paul Smith, of Yukon.
