NEW YORK _ Golden State’s victory over San Antonio in a showdown of the league’s top teams was the most-watched telecast ever on NBA TV.

The network says the game averaged 1.4 million viewers Monday night, peaking at 1.7 million viewers between 11:15-11:30 p.m. EST.

The previous most-viewed telecast was Game 6 of a 2014 first-round series between Indiana and Atlanta that averaged 1.1 million viewers.

The Warriors beat the Spurs 120-90 to run their record to 41-4. The Spurs are 38-7.

With Cleveland beating Minnesota in the first game of NBA TV’s doubleheader, the network said Tuesday it set records for total day audience and extended prime-time viewership.
