    Individual regular-season game tickets for the Los Angeles Lakers went on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday.

    Tickets are available online at ticketmaster.com, at all TicketMaster locations and by calling 800-4NBATIX. No tickets will be sold at the Staples Center Box Office on Saturday.

    Tickets are limited to four per person per game. Approximately 1,000 tickets will be available for each game, according to John Black, the Lakers vice president of public relations.

    Black said he anticipated that more than half of the 41 games will sell out Saturday, "perhaps more."

    Black said he thought the most popular games would be the Oct. 27 season opener against the Los Angeles Clippers; the Christmas Day game against Shaquille O'Neal, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers; the Jan. 18 game against the Orlando Magic; and the Feb. 18 game against the Boston Celtics.

    The Lakers have sold out their last 135 regular season and playoff home games, including each of the last two seasons.

    Ticket prices remain unchanged from last season for 32 games -- $90, $115, $155, $220 and $260 for lower bowl seats and $10, $35 and $45 for upper bowl seats. Prices are higher for nine premium games.

    "With the current state of the economy, we feel that increasing ticket prices for the upcoming season would add to the financial burden that most families and individuals are suffering at this time," Lakers Executive Vice President of Business Operations Jeanie Buss said in March, when the ticket price freeze was announced.

    "We are determined not only to continue fielding a team that enjoys a high level of success on the court, but also to keeping our games affordable for our loyal fans, who are the heart and soul of the team.

    "Although we are freezing prices for the upcoming season, rest assured that we will continue to do whatever is necessary to bring another NBA championship to Los Angeles."
