Posted May 5 2009 11:27PM

ATLANTA (AP) -- Game 7 of the Bulls-Celtics series has supplanted Game 6 as the most-watched first-round NBA playoff game ever on cable.

TNT says Boston's 109-99 win Saturday to end the exhilarating series was seen by 6.99 million people. That was the most viewers for a first-round game on broadcast or cable since the 2004 Lakers-Rockets Game 4 on ABC.

The Bulls' 128-127 triple-overtime victory in Game 6 on Thursday was seen by 5.35 million people.
