*A lottery system will be in place for those fans that choose to purchase their tickets at American Airlines Center. Beginning at 6 a.m., a lottery number will be given to each fan that arrives early. At approximately 9:30 a.m. or when all the lottery numbers have been given out (whichever comes first), there will be a drawing to determine the first person in line. All numbers sequentially following the drawn number will be the second, third, fourth, etc. in line.
Tickets will be available through all channels simultaneously and lottery numbers (at American Airlines Center) do not guarantee anyone the right to purchase game tickets. Tickets will be sold upon availability. American Airlines Center® policy prohibits camping out on the premises.
