Game 4 of what is shaping up to be the best series in the NBA Playoffs (excuse the hometown bias) scored big in the ratings Sunday afternoon – between the Boston Celtics and the Chicago Bulls.
Led by Ben Gordon, the Bulls scored a 121-118 double-overtime victory at the United Center over the Celtics to tie the series at 2-2.
The game averaged a 4.0 household rating, up 33% from last year’s comparable time period game (Cavs-Wizards.)
Here in Chicago, WLS-TV averaged a 10.4 household rating for the game, while Boston’s WCVB-TV averaged a 10.5.
Game 5 is scheduled for tonight at the TD Bankenworth Garden on Comcast SportsNet (in both Chicago and New England) and TNT nationally, starting at 6 p.m. (CT).
