With training camp and the pre-season just weeks away, and with the Raptors unveiling their tentatively tiered pricing for every home game on the schedule (prices will eventually fluctuate based on demand), I thought now would be a good time to help fellow Raptors fans looking for the best bang for their buck this season at the Air Canada Centre.

This season, there are five tiers of pricing for regular season games: Best Value, Value, Premium, Premium+ and Super Premium. To give you an idea of the variance in price across the different tiers, I’ll use the price point my season tickets fall under (Balcony Prime 1).

In one of their worst defensive outings of the season, the Raptors allowed Houston to shoot 53% from the field and 50% from three-point land. Toronto failed to build off of a competitive game against the Spurs, as James Harden and Jeremy Lin carved up their defence, both finishing with double-digit assist totals. Terrence Ross provided the lone bright spot for the Raptors, as he registered career-highs of 19 points and 5 rebounds.
