Triple Overtime Delivers for Comcast SportsNet

The Boston Celtics’ loss in triple overtime Thursday night in game six of the team’s first-round NBA Playoffs series against the Chicago Bulls was Comcast SportsNet’s gain, as the regional sports network set a ratings record with an 8.2, or an estimated 360,800 homes in New England.

CSN set its record despite the availability of the game on TNT. The network said its postseason ratings are up nearly 10% versus last season.
