ABC’s NBA Finals championships, which ended Sunday, were the second-most-watched basketball championships since 2004, averaging a preliminary 14.3 million viewers in each of five games, says The Hollywood Reporter.

NBC also scored with the deciding game 7 of hockey’s Stanley Cup Finals, which drew 8 million viewers on Friday, making it the most-watched pro hockey game since 1973’s faceoff between Montreal and Chicago.
