Not that there will be another one after tomorrow, but if you were planning on hitting a Bulls playoff game in Indiana, you probably should make sure you know someone in Indiana who can buy tickets for you. According to ESPN 1000 the Pacers have made it a requirement that you have residence in Indiana in order to get tickets to any of the Bulls/Pacers games played in Indiana. I don't know how long they have been doing this (it may be a reaction to a large amount of tickets bought by people in Illinois), but there is one big question that looms with this.

Do you take this as a good or bad thing?

Myself, there was actually a legitimate chance of me going to game 4 not too long ago, but the plans fell through. Other than that, I have no plans on going to Indiana for a game. I do take this as a compliment though, it shows how great Bulls fans are at traveling. We saw how many Bulls fans were there for game 3, and I'm sure there will be a good game 4 crowd. Sure, it's not a huge distance, but at the same time it shows how much the Pacers know that the Bulls really rule this area, that they actually had to restrict Bulls fans from getting tickets.

Sure, I think it's unfair that someone who's willing to get the tickets before someone else can't get them just because of the state they live in, but at the same time it just shows the power of Bulls fans.

That may apply to tickets sold directly by the team but I doubt ticketmaster wants to enforce that and cost themselves money.

But from the looks of the game 4 crowd either thousands of Hoosiers were wearing RED or Illinois people managed to get tickets.

I went to game 3, bought my tickets off stub hub for like 33 bucks all fee's included.

I draw these conclusions,

Indiana fans suck.

And indiana fans suck.


Buy your tickets so the other team doesn't get them.... geeeeez

The amount of bulls fans there was embarrassing if your a pacers fan.

Supposedly it's been all the tickets that were sold on Stub Hub, and northwest Indiana has a huge Bulls fan base.
