BC-BKN--Thunder-Warriors Ratings

The Warriors' Game 7 win to complete a comeback from down 3-1 in the Western Conference finals has drawn the largest TV audience for an NBA game on cable.

The defending champs' 96-88 come-from-behind victory over the Thunder on Monday night on TNT averaged 15.9 million viewers. The network said Tuesday that's the most-watched telecast of any kind in TNT's 28-year history.

It was the largest audience for any pre-NBA Finals game since Game 7 of the 2000 Western Conference finals between the Lakers and Trail Blazers.
