Posted Jun 22 2012 8:41PM

MIAMI (AP) -- The NBA Finals have matched last year's average television rating with one fewer game.

The five games between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder on ABC averaged a 10.1 rating, the same as the 2011 Heat-Mavericks series that went six games.

The Heat's championship-clinching victory Thursday night earned a 10.9 rating, up 1 percent from last year's Game 5.

In Miami, the game drew a 40.3 rating, the highest for an NBA game in the market.

Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned to a program.
