NBA Finals Game 3 viewership down from '12

Associated Press

NEW YORK -- The NBA Finals' television viewership for Game 3 was down 9 percent from last year.

The San Antonio Spurs' 113-77 win over Miami on Tuesday night on ABC averaged just over 14 million viewers, down from almost 15.5 million for the Heat-Thunder series a year ago.

This season's Game 3 quickly turned into a rout in the second half, while Miami's victory in 2012 was close in the fourth quarter.
