Friday - 6/21/2013, 8:00pm  ET
NEW YORK (AP) -- The Heat's Game 7 win over the San Antonio Spurs drew the second-most viewers for the NBA Finals on ABC since the network took over the series in 2003.
Miami's 95-88 victory Thursday night was watched by an average of 26.3 million people. Game 7 between the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics in 2010 had an audience of 28.2 million.
The series averaged 17.7 million viewers, up 5 percent from last year's Heat-Thunder finals, which went only five games.
