NBA Finals Game 5 viewership down from last year
NEW YORK -- The NBA Finals' television viewership for Game 5 was down 12 percent from last year.
The San Antonio Spurs' 114-104 victory over Miami on Sunday on ABC was watched by an average of almost 16.3 million people. That's down from nearly 18.5 million for the Heat-Thunder series in 2012.
Miami clinched the title in Game 5 a year ago, and decisive games tend to draw more viewers.
