MIAMI -

Game 7 tickets sold out Thursday afternoon, leaving some die-hard Miami Heat fans ticketless.

"We got here at 3 a.m. and then it started raining and then security came and we had to leave," said John Torres. "We're just trying to get at least two or three tickets. Our budget is probably $2,000 or $3,000.

Many fans said they were ready to spend thousands of dollars on the cheapest seats in the house.

"We brought a thousand. See where it gets us," said Steve Fier.

On Stubhub.com, a seat in Section 309 was $1,000; in Section 108, tickets were going for $4,000; and, two courtside tickets were $45,000.
