The NBA's regular season doesn't tip off until next week, and already a significant bargain ticket offer has materialized. It includes opening night, no less. Through TravelZoo, the New Jersey News announced they were offering tickets for four of their first five home games at up to 75% off the regular price.

The Nets' Oct. 27 debut against the Detroit Pistons, Oct. 29 game vs. the Sacramento Kings, Nov. 3 vs. the Charlotte Bobcats and Nov. 9 vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers all include a similar price-slashing structure (with small variations). At the deal's high end, normally $200 lower-level seats are going for $50. At the low end, normally $40 seats are available for $10. (The team wisely omitted the Oct. 31 game against the LeBron James-led Miami Heat from the arrangement.)
