Bulls-Heat Playoff Tickets Already Fetching A Premium

CHICAGO (CBS) — Tickets went on sale this morning for the Bulls playoff series with the Miami Heat, but seats on the secondary market are already selling for a premium.

As of 11:30 a.m., there were a few single seats still available on Ticketmaster for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday–ranging in price from $150 (for nosebleed seats) to about $350 (for mid-level seats.) Single seats were also still available for Game 2 for around the same price.
