The NBA seems to be in good hands for the foreseeable future. No matter what the outcome of the games have been, fans seem glued to their seats watching the 2016 NBA Finals.
While people generally hate blowouts because it takes away the excitement of hard fought games, Game 1 of the Finals netted record ratings, and it continued in Game 2.
Game 1's record-setting night peaked at 14.8 million viewers while Game 2 followed close behind at 14.3 million viewers, according to tvbythenubmers.
The star power of LeBron James and Stephen Curry of course helps. LeBron and the Cavs are sill trying to bring a championship to Cleveland, although the Cavs have been struggling to find the same cohesion they had during their eastern conference playoffs run. Meanwhile, the Warriors offer the opportunity to see a team set a new historical mark. Winning an NBA season best 73-9 record will only matter most if they can cap it off by winning a back-to-back NBA championship.
Game 3 starts Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
