Celtics, Heat Draw Highest NBA Cable Rating Ever With Boston's Overtime Win in Game 4The answer to "Are you watching this?!" with every Rajon Rondo pass, LeBron James frown and ridiculously long timeout on Sunday night was an emphatic yes.

Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Celtics and Heat drew a rating of 7.9, a record for an NBA playoff game on cable since tracking began in 2003, according to ESPN.

The game earned a 20.7 rating in Boston, which enjoyed Keyon Dooling 3-pointers and double-digit leads most of the way until Miami made a comeback and sent the game to overtime.

The game's rating was 39 percent higher than last season's peak, in the Western Conference Finals between the Mavericks and the Thunder.
