Ratings for Game 2 of NBA Finals down slightly
NEW YORK (AP) Ratings for ABC’s broadcast of Game 2 of the NBA Finals were down slightly from last year.
Game 2 between Golden State and Cleveland drew a peak audience of 22.5 million viewers and averaged 18.5 million. ESPN said Monday it was still the third-largest Game 2 audience since 2001.
The Warriors‘ 122-103 rout Sunday also drew 7 percent more viewers than their Game 1 victory, even though that game was close the whole way before Golden State won in overtime.
