The Cleveland Cavaliers' decisive 117-103 victory over the San Antonio Spurs generated 3,316,000 average viewers (p2+) and a 2.1 U.S. household rating. The broadcast peaked with nearly four million viewers (3,974,000, p2+) from 10:30-10:45 p.m.

The strong numbers propelled ABC to win the night across the following demos: P18-34, P18-49, M18-34, M18-49. Additionally, Saturday's broadcast was also the second-most watched and second-highest rated NBA regular-season game of the season across ESPN networks (non-Christmas).
