MIAMI – The NBA Finals' Game 4 preliminary television rating is the highest since 2004.
The Miami Heat's 104-98 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night on ABC earned a 12.4 overnight rating. ESPN said Wednesday that was up 12 percent from last year's Heat-Mavericks series.
Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program. Overnight ratings measure the country's largest markets.
