NEW YORK (AP) — The Lakers' win over the Heat drew the most viewers for a non-Christmas regular-season NBA game on ABC.

Sunday's broadcast was watched by more than 7 million people. It equaled a Celtics-Lakers matchup last year as ABC's highest-rated non-Christmas regular-season game with a 4.3.

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