MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Tickets to game three of the playoff series between the Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder are sold out.

Tyler Schlesinger was the first in line to buy tickets Monday morning. The line that formed behind him snaked around the FedExForum plaza.

"Playoff tickets went on sale at 12 o'clock today [Monday]," said John Pugliese, VP of marketing, communications, and broadcasting. "We had a great line of almost 300 people."

"It's a great time to be the ticket guy. The team winning makes our job a little bit easier," said Dennis O'Connor. "People are believing. There's a ton of excitement around town, and it's a great time to be a Grizzlies fan."

Fans were limited to eight tickets per purchase, although Kerry Morgan was there to buy sixteen.

"I might have to get in line again," he said.

Game two tips off in Oklahoma City Tuesday at 8:30 p.m.

The series will come back to Memphis Saturday afternoon and Monday.
