Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat ranks at the least-watched Game 7 of a conference final since the Detroit Pistons and Heat in 2005.

The full seven-game Eastern Conference Finals averaged 6.98 million viewers on ESPN, up 40% from Hawks-Bucks on TNT last year (5.0M) and the most-watched conference final since Warriors-Blazers on ESPN three years ago (7.6M). 

Celtics-Heat averaged more viewers than the five-game Warriors-Mavericks Western Conference Finals on TNT (6.7M), marking the first time since 2014 it has outdrawn its Western counterpart.
