Tickets sold out within minutes for the match up, which will be the first time newly-acquired Kevin Durant dons the blue and gold of Golden State.
Fans reacted with a mix of anger, frustration, and excitement at the news, with some excited about the demand for professional basketball on Canada’s West Coast.

Others were more upset with Ticketmaster, who has encountered problems with tickets selling out quickly before. Concerts for Drake, Adele, and Paul McCartney all sold out instantly as well, with some people managing to snag multiple tickets at a time that they were able to sell online for marked up prices.
Tickets for the Raps and Warriors are already available on Craigslist and Stubhub from scalpers who will be able to make a significant profit off of the tickets.
