Wednesday Cable Final Nationals: Warriors-Thunder on ESPN Draw Best NBA Audience Since Opening Night

The Oklahoma City Thunder’s 108-91 win over the Golden State Warriors on ESPN drew 3.23 million viewers on Thanksgiving Eve — the best viewership for an NBA game since opening night of the regular season on Oct. 17. Of the four most-watched games this season so far, three of them involved the Warriors (and curiously, all three were Golden State losses): vs. Houston on Oct. 17 (4.25 million), the aforementioned at Oklahoma City (3.23 million) and at Boston on Nov. 16 (3 million).
