Ratings List High Numbers for NBA Finals On ABC


Camille Augustin / June 21, 2013

The on-edge game 7 match-up between the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat brought ABC network the “second-most viewers” of the NBA Finals on Thursday (June 20).

The network began to air the Finals dating back 10 years ago and last night’s game raked in 26.3 million viewers, leaving a 1.9 million difference than that of 2010’s Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers’ meeting.

President Barack Obama, an avid basketball fan, also congratulated the Heat victors (95-88), and their coach Erik Spoelstra, as the third time NBA championship team will celebrate their win at Monday’s parade (June 24) in Miami, Fla.
