Thunder-Heat Showdown Delivers ESPN's Highest-Rated NBA Game of the Season

Local Ratings Surge in Oklahoma City, Miami, New York; Record Rating in Tulsa

Best NBA Game on WatchESPN this Season

Wednesday's 2012 NBA Finals rematch - the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the defending NBA Champion Miami Heat, 112-95, behind Kevin Durant's 33-point performance - delivered a 2.7 overnight rating, according to Nielsen. This is the highest-rated NBA game on ESPN during the 2013-14 season. The telecast was up 93 percent from last year's comparable game (Miami Heat at Brooklyn Nets, 1.4).

In addition, last night's Thunder-Heat game led to a local market ratings surge in several markets, including Oklahoma City (7.9), Miami (6.1) and New York (3.9) and set an ESPN ratings record in Tulsa (4.9).
