Sunday Final Nationals: Cavaliers-Warriors on ABC Posts Top NBA Finals Game 2 Audience in 19 Years

ABC ruled on Sunday night in all key figures. In prime time, the network averaged 15.53 million viewers, with a 5.6 rating/21 share in adults 18-49 and a 6.0 rating/19 share in adults 25-54.
Although Game 2 was yet another blowout win for the Golden State Warriors over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the “2017 NBA Finals”, it delivered the largest viewership for a second Finals game since Chicago-Utah on NBC — Michael Jordan’s last Finals series in his playing career — from June 5, 1998 (26.3 million viewers).
ESPN reported an additional 436,000 viewers tuned into Game 2 via streaming.
Through its first two games, the 2017 NBA Finals has averaged a total audience of 20.1 million viewers (19.19 million on ABC; 410,000 via streaming) — the best marks for the series since the aforementioned 1998 NBA Finals.
