Staples Center will be busy in May. The Clippers and Lakers will host at least two playoff games each in the NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals. The Kings return to Staples on May 3rd to host the St. Louis Blues in Games 3 and 4 of the NHL Western Conference Semis.
Most experts would have picked the Lakers as the odds-on favorite (of the three LA teams) to go the deepest in the playoffs–but the Kings stole Game 1 on the road at St. Louis, and the resilient Clippers rallied from 27 points down to stun the Grizzlies in Memphis. A run to the NHL Western Conference Semis has Kings ticket prices even with Lakers ticket prices ($304). Clippers ticket prices remain a bargain at $166, but expect that to change if the Clips continue to win.
