“Game of Thrones” suffered a down week in the ratings, while the NBA Western Conference Finals series between the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder got more and more dramatic as it went on.

As a result, Games 4, 5 and 6 of that series topped “Game of Thrones” in the ratings for the week of May 23-29. Game 6 of Warriors-Thunder captured the top spot in both adults 18-49 (4.1 rating) and viewers (10.81 million).
