Game 3 of The NBA Finals, featuring the Miami Heat against the Dallas Mavericks, averaged an estimated 13.58 million viewers Sunday night, according to overnight Nielsens. (Preliminary ratings for live sports events can sometimes be substantially revised once final figures are reported.) Sunday’s result compares with the 15.72 million viewers who watched Game 3 of last year’s NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers. On Saturday, Game 2 of ice hockey’s Stanley Cup finals took a far bigger hit in the ratings. The Boston-Vancouver game averaged 3.37 million viewers 44 percent below the 6 million viewers who watched last year’s Game 2 between Philadelphia and Chicago.
