New York Knicks ticket prices are heating up as the team prepares to host its first postseason game since 2013.

As of Monday, the cheapest resale ticket for Game 1 of New York's first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks at Madison Square Garden was $968 plus fees on SeatGeek, according to SNY's Ryan Morik. That amount is nearly three times higher than StubHub's get-in price for Game 1 of the Brooklyn Nets' first-round series.

The Knicks defeated the Boston Celtics 96-92 in their regular-season finale on Sunday to clinch fourth place in the Eastern Conference and home-court advantage for the first round of the playoffs. The franchise expects to host around 5,700 fans at MSG during the postseason.
