Spurs-Warriors matchup sets NBA TV viewing record
NEW YORK (AP) Golden State's victory over San Antonio in a showdown of the league's top teams was the most-watched telecast ever on NBA TV.
The network says the game averaged 1.4 million viewers Monday night, peaking at 1.7 million viewers between 11:15-11:30 p.m. EST.
The previous most-viewed telecast was Game 6 of a 2014 first-round series between Indiana and Atlanta that averaged 1.1 million viewers.
With Cleveland beating Minnesota in the first game of NBA TV's doubleheader, the network said Tuesday it set records for total day audience and extended prime-time viewership.
