Celtics-Bulls Game Seven a Classic for CSN

The Boston Celtics’ NBA Playoffs first-round series-clinching game-seven 109-99 victory over the Chicago Bulls Saturday shattered Comcast SportsNet’s previous record set during game six of the series.

The regional sports network averaged a 10.1 rating and 484,000 New England homes, peaking at a 16.6 rating and 730,400 homes. CSN averaged an 8.2 for game six of the Celtics-Bulls series.

CSN says game seven outrated both the Kentucky Derby on NBC and NESN’s carriage of the Boston Red Sox.
