NOW: Want to see Game 5 in Phoenix? This is what it will cost Bucks fans coming from Milwaukee


MILWAUKEE, Wis. (CBS 58)-- The Bucks are on the road again for Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

It won't be a clincher for either team, but it's still an important game. Local experts break down what it would cost for Bucks fans to watch in person. 

"If they win Game 5, it's going to explode," James Bryce said. 

The Ticket King partner isn't talking about the city's excitement.

"It's going up. How much it's going to go up? I don't know," Bryce said.

Bryce is referring to ticket prices. To get in the door for Game 5, you're going to spend around at least $600. For Game 6, that number jumps up to $900. If there's a Game 7, Bryce said you likely won't find tickets cheaper than $1,000.

These prices are volatile and can change quickly.

"If you plan on going to the game, and you're thinking, you know what, I want to go whether it's a clinch or not, I'd buy right now," Bryce said.

You have tickets, but how are you getting to Game 5 in Phoenix? Leaving on a round-trip Friday from General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee starts as low as $600.

"That's fairly high for Phoenix. You can usually get there between $300 and $500, but given that we are so close into departure, it's not ridiculous," Elm Grove Travel President Jenny Cagle said.

Cagle said hotels in Phoenix typically range between $150 to about $500 per night.

"Phoenix and that whole surrounding area has a little bit of everything," Cagle said. "Anyone would be able to find what they're looking for."

In total, going the cheapest route to see the Bucks play in Game 5 is still upwards of $2,000. So, Cagle recommends making a trip out of it.

"I think Phoenix, it's way more than just the game," Cagle said. "There's a lot to offer in that area."

This doesn't include food or however many beers you drink at the game, but if you do have a couple thousand dollars lying around, this is certainly a once in a lifetime way to spend it.

If spending that much isn't possible, there's always the option to watch the game surrounded by Bucks fan in the Deer District.
