“Last night’s Game 7 Toronto Raptors win against the Indiana Pacers had an average audience of 1.53 million viewers, making it the most-watched Raptors game ever in Canada.  The game reached 4.4 million Canadians, with audience levels peaking at 2.63 million at 10:30 p.m. ET as the Raptors clinched a berth in Round 2 of the 2016 NBA Playoffs.  It was the most-watched program in Canada on Sunday night.” released broadcaster SportsNet.

The Raptors have been averaging over 215,000 viewers during the regular season games and an average of 408,500 views during their opening round series against the Indiana Pacers.
