You can try to get tickets the same day as the game, but good seats that are affordable can quickly get snapped up, so you'll end up paying cheap for bad seats in the high 400s or too much money for seats that have a good view of the court. Avoid getting tickets from scalpers or third parties, especially if you're from out of town, because if they end up not being legitimate, there's nothing the arena can do for you.
