Ratings for Game 2 of NBA Finals up a bit over Game 1

NEW YORK — Ratings for Game 2 of the NBA Finals were slightly higher than the numbers for Game 1 of the title series between Toronto and Golden State.

The Warriors' win on Sunday night drew a 10.2 overnight rating, up a bit from the 10.1 rating for Game 1.

Ratings will likely remain down from last year's numbers throughout the series, because Canadian viewership does not factor into the formula and because these are the first finals since 2010 without LeBron James on the floor.

The 10.2 overnight is roughly even with the same overnight from Game 2 of the finals in 2008, 2013 and 2014.

Game 3 is Wednesday night in Oakland, California.
