The NBA Finals' television viewership for Game 5 was down 13 percent from last year.

The San Antonio Spurs' 114-104 victory over Miami on Sunday on ABC was watched by an average of 16.1 million people. That's down from 18.5 million for the Heat-Thunder series in 2012.

Miami clinched the title in Game 5 a year ago, and decisive games tend to draw more viewers.
