Last night's Game 3 is only behind ESPN's Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics Game 3 in 2012 (5.6 metered market rating) as the network's highest rated Conference Finals Game 3 ever. Additionally, Game 3 of the 2009 NBA Western Conference Finals - Los Angeles Lakers vs. Denver Nuggets - drew a 6.6 metered market rating on ABC.
