NBA Finals Game 6 draws 20.6 million viewers

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Heat's wild overtime win over the Spurs in the NBA Finals drew the second-largest audience for a Game 6 since ABC started televising the series in 2003.

Miami's 103-100 victory Tuesday night to avoid elimination was watched by an average of 20.6 million viewers. The Heat's Game 6 loss to Dallas in 2011, when the Mavericks clinched the title, had the most with 23.9 million. This is the seventh series since 2003 to go at least six games.
