Basing the prices of game tickets on the game's relative demand is a smooth move for sure. The admission to those Tuesday 1pm games has no business being the same price as Saturday night. Competitive pricing would maximize profit on prime timeslots, and pull in cash on those lower profile events.

I'm sure there's plenty of that going on behind the scenes, PC. Moneyball seems to be a standard practice in all sports teams nowadays, as are game-by-game and player-interaction-by-player-interaction stats. I can always follow up with David Bencs and ask him!
What's interesting to me is that the customer-focused analytics yield results regardless of how well or poorly the team is playing.

To me, it's good to hear that the Magic are focused on their paying customers and internet fans.
Just as important is analytics focused on improving the players and the team - we just won't hear much about that until after the fact.
