With another lopsided score, NBA Finals audience down again

NEW YORK (AP) With another lopsided score in Game 6, viewership is down again from last year for the NBA Finals.

A Game 7 is coming Sunday, though, with a chance for a massive audience.

The Cleveland Cavaliers' 115-101 win over the Warriors on Thursday night averaged more than 20.7 million viewers on ABC. That's down about 11 percent from the nearly 23.3 million for last season's Game 6, when Golden State clinched the championship.
