Pacers-Heat game most-watched ever for NBA TV

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Pacers' 90-84 victory over the Miami Heat on Tuesday night was the most-watched game ever on the league's NBA TV outlet.

The network said Wednesday that the telecast averaged 920,000 viewers, topping out at more than 1 million from 10:15 to 10:30 p.m. EST.

The game, the first between the two since Miami's seven-game victory in last season's Eastern Conference finals, surpassed the 868,000 total viewers that watched a Lakers-Portland game on Oct. 31, 2012.

The previous highest game for NBA TV this season came Sunday, when 691,000 watched Kobe Bryant's return for the Lakers against Toronto.

The Pacers-Heat matchup also was the highest rated regular-season Pacers telecast ever on Fox Sports Indiana.

  • Well...
    ... not to suggest that this game wasn't as good as it definitely was, but I'm thinking that at least part of that increase can be attributed to the increase in homes that now receive the NBA channel as part of their standard cable subscription. GO PACERS!!!!
  • Typo
    The game was over at 9:45 can you explain why the ratings were the highest when the game was over?
