I should actually say they are middle of the pack at the TD Garden. As you can see below, the games at Madison Square Garden are fetching the highest prices of any first round series – by far. The games in NY are averaging an astonishing $541 per seat, while games in Boston are averaging $243.
So the next time you hear some broadcaster or sportswriter muttering that Bill Belichick never tells them anything, take that as a sign. If Belichick didn’t feel like wasting his time with them, you probably shouldn’t either.
