Game 2 Draws Best Preliminary TV Rating Since 2004

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The NBA Finals’ Game 2 drew the highest preliminary television rating since 2004.

The Miami Heat’s 100-96 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night on ABC earned an 11.8 overnight rating. The network said Friday that was up 12 percent from last year’s series between the Heat and Dallas Mavericks.

Game 2 of the 2004 finals between the Detroit Pistons and Los Angeles Lakers drew a 12.3 overnight rating.

Ratings represent the percentage of U.S. homes with televisions tuned into a program. Overnight ratings measure the country’s largest markets.
