The Golden State Warriors have a chance to close out the NBA Finals over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 on Monday, and apparently, some fan really wants to see it.
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, someone paid $133,000 for two courtside seats to Game 5 in Oracle Arena in Oakland, a new record NBA purchase. There were reportedly $17,000 in fees for the purchase.
Rovell reports that the tickets were sold by a season-ticket holder on the Warriors’ resale site.
The Warriors also confirmed the purchase to Business Insider.
A person has paid $133,000 on the Warriors resale site for 2 floor tickets to tonight’s Game 5 of the NBA Finals. It is an NBA record sale.

According to Rovell, there were two other big sales for “prime” seats on the site for Game 5 – one for $90,000 and $82,000.
Hopefully the buyers are aware that there is a possibility the Warriors won’t clinch the championship in Game 5.
