NEW YORK  — The NBA Finals’ television viewership for Game 1 was down 12 percent from last year.

The San Antonio Spurs’ win over the Heat on Thursday night on ABC was watched by 14.2 million people. That’s down from Miami’s appearances the previous two seasons, 16.2 million against Oklahoma City in 2012 and 15.2 against Dallas in 2011, but higher than the six years before that.

    If TJ Manotoc and Boom Gonzales will commentate again in the next game, I will watch via NBA League Pass. I’d rather pay than have my ears bleed with these two who talk too much and think they know it all about the NBA.
