Default Heat - Lakers Draws best ratings Since 2004

NEW YORK (AP)óThe highly anticipated first matchup between the new-look Heat and the defending-champion Lakers drew the highest television rating for an NBA regular-season game on ABC since 2004.

Miamiís 96-80 Christmas win earned a 6.4 fast national rating Saturday. Thatís up 45 percent over the game in the same window last year, also a matchup between Los Angeles and LeBron James(notes), then with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Itís the best since a 7.3 for another Heat-Lakers meeting on Christmas six years earlier.

ESPN said Monday the Celtics-Magic game on ABC drew a 4.6, up 39 percent from the matchup between the same teams last season.

The average rating for the three games on ESPN increased 20 percent from a year ago.

Ratings measure the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program.
