PORTLAND The Blazers returned to Portland after back-to-back wins against Houston that kicked off the first round of the NBAPlayoffs. Now, Blazers fans are lining up for a chance to see games 3 and 4.
The Moda Center made more tickets available, but they were going fast.
On Thursday morning, just 400 standing-room-only tickets were left for Friday s game. Less than 500 seated tickets were available for Sunday s game and after those sell, the box office will offer another 500 standing-room-only tickets.
Fans were streaming in to the box office Thursday to snap up the remaining tickets.
We're really excited, we've been watching most of the games on TV from home, but because it's a great seat, we just wanted to come watch it in person! Said Blazers fan Joann Grubb.
Box office staff said it s been a long time since they ve seen fans this excited.
To have all-stars performing the way they are really draws attention to the work they are doing, said Tyler Howell of the Portland Trail Blazers. We are seeing all the hard work throughout the year pay off.
The ticket frenzy also had scammers hoping for a big pay day, and officials warned fans to make sure to buy tickets from the Moda Center Box Office.
