Default Tickets???

Now that I live in Toronto, anyone know when tickets go on sale? What are the normal prices for tickets? Do games ussually sell out?

I am trying to get Cavs tickets. I know that shocks you all.

best way to get tickets:

lets say tip off is 7:05 est. show up at the acc around 6:50.. hang around 10 minutes looking for scalpers, find one you'd feel comfortable talking to. then at around 7:05-7:07 go up to a scalper and tell him you want really good tickets. he'll offer you $200 tickets for around $120 or something... tell him thats much too high, and the game is starting RIGHT NOW... (basically implying, if you dont sell these tickets to me RIGHT NOW, they're garbage) and then he'll be like "ok ok... 90 bucks" ...drag your feet a bit, and be like, you know what? i've got $70 bucks... it's all i got and the game starts right now... and he'll probably agree. i do this EVERY TIME i go to see a raptor game, and i'm always sitting in the platinum seats for around 50-80 bucks.

works even better if you're with a few buddies, cause the scalpers like it when they can unload more than one ticket at a time.

Or if you know that the game wont sell out just buy the $10 tickets and sit there until half time and when Halftime arrives, move down to the seats that are empty on tje stadiums. the security is ussually taking a break by than, alot of people do that.

yeaaa thats one way to do it... but then you run the risk of getting kicked out if you're caught.

i mean, if EVERYONE does this little trick, you think they would have picked up on it by now? ofcourse.

and the scalpers aint bad people... you just can't be intimidated...

Buy tickets for the nosebleeds and just move to where you want. The security in the arena is crap. Worst they'll do is tell you to move to where your ticket tells you to sit. But yeah, wait until like 1st period or whatever is over, you get a view of whos sitting where and what not, and you just go and sit where it's empty. I did it last year @ the Bobcats game.
