Talk about home-court advantage.

If you're a Memphis Grizzlies fan living in Tennessee who is trying to buy tickets to one of your team's playoff games against the Thunder in Oklahoma City, you are out of luck.

The Thunder are restricting sales to residents of Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, Missouri and Nebraska only.

Take a look at the message that comes up on the team's website, courtesy of @ChrisVernonShow.

This isn't the first time a sports team has restricted its playoff ticket sales to make sure the crowd was in their favor. In January, the Seattle Seahawks put the kibosh on California residents trying to buy tickets to their NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers

And look at how well that did for them.
