Game 4 ratings up 6 percent from 2009
NEW YORK -- The Celtics' series-tying win earned the highest preliminary rating for Game 4 of an NBA Finals since 2004.
This series has also been drawing higher ratings than the Celtics-Lakers matchup in 2008. The numbers have been the best since the Detroit-L.A. series six years ago. Game 4 that year earned a 14.5 overnight rating.
Ratings measure the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program. Overnight ratings represent the country's largest markets.
