This just got real. The Celtics plan on selling a limited amount of round two playoff tickets on Thursday. This is based on the Celtics being the lower seed of course. Things could still change if the Philadelphia 76ers channel their inner 2004 Boston Red Sox and mount an unbelievable comeback over the Miami Heat.
Here is the official release from the Boston Celtics:
BOSTON — The Boston Celtics announced today that a limited number of playoff tickets for Round 2, Home Games 1, 2 and 3 at the TD Garden will go on sale Thursday, April 28 at 2 p.m. There is a three (3) ticket limit per customer and seats start at just $18.
