Now that the team has secured a sixth consecutive trip to the playoffs, the Portland Trail Blazers have announced that first-round playoff tickets will go on sale to the general public at noon today.
In the announcement, the team did make a reference to the online shenanigans that usually take place today:
While that day is traditionally the prank-filled April Fool’s Day, team officials are urging fans to avoid being “fooled” and victims of ticket fraud by purchasing directly at trailblazers.com/tix.
The Trail Blazers are currently in fourth place in the Western Conference, a half-game behind the Houston Rockets. It’s likely that their first-round playoff opponent will not be determined until the end of the regular season.
