Someone was watching Lakers-Heat

ESPN says today that its ABC telecast of the Lakers-Heat game Sunday from Staples Center was the network’s most-viewed non-Christmas Day regular season NBA game. Ever.

The broadcast averaged 7,037,000 viewers, according to Nielsen, a number extracted from the 4.3 rating. That’s the same rating that a Lakers-Celtics game on Jan. 30, 2011 generated, but at that time, it didn’t represent as many viewers.

The game did a 9.6 rating in L.A. and 13.9 in Miami.
