When Dwyane Wade leads Miami into the Pepsi Center to face the struggling Denver Nuggets Friday night, March 20, ticket prices for a Nuggets’ game will be as pricey as they’ll be all month at an average of $157.74 and a get-in price of $23 according to TiqIQ.com.
And with the Heat battling to solidify playoff positioning in the Eastern Conference, fans are sure to get a show. For much of the second half of the season, Miami has found itself locked in a four team tug-of-war with Charlotte, Brooklyn and Indiana for the conference’s final two playoff spots.

When it comes to displaying such teamwork and building that kind of unity, the Nuggets may still have a few lessons to learn. The team recently fired coach Brian Shaw after a February swoon saw them drop 10 of 11 games by an average of better than 13 points.
After the Heat game, the Nuggets visit Orlando before returning home Wednesday night, March 25 to face the lowly Philadelphia 76ers in a game where tickets prices will be at an all month low of $40 with a get-in price of $3.
