NEW YORK (AP) - Television ratings for Game 6 of the NBA finals were down from the last one between the Lakers and Celtics, which was also a blowout but crowned a champion.

Los Angeles' 89-67 win Tuesday on ABC drew a 12.3 overnight rating, down 4 percent from the 12.8 for Boston's lopsided clinching victory in 2008.

This time there will be a rare Game 7 - just the third in 22 years - and the chance for a big rating on Thursday.

The last non-clinching Game 6, Pistons-Spurs in 2005, earned a 10.5 - 15 percent lower than Tuesday's game.

Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program. Overnight ratings measure the country's largest markets.
