If you want to break NBA TV ratings records, you better make sure you’re showing the Golden State Warriors. Just a couple weeks after NBA TV saw the Warriors and Spurs game pull in the best overnight ranking in the history of the network, Steph Curry’s team helped another network put up big numbers.
Golden State’s 116-108 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday was the most-watched non-Christmas regular-season NBA game on ESPN since Oct. 31, 2014 (Cleveland-Chicago). The game saw an average of 3,230,000 viewers tune in to watch the Warriors do what the Warriors have been doing all year long.
The game was also the most-watched NBA regular-season game ever on WatchESPN with almost 14 million total minutes viewed, 314,900 unique viewers, and an average minute audience of 94,400.
If the Warriors keep up this pace, expect to see more records fall as audiences want to see if Steph Curry’s team can keep up with the 1996 Bulls.
