ESPN managed to grab the top spot of the night in the Friday cable ratings last week, with its live broadcast of the Minnesota Timberwolves vs Chicago Bulls NBA basketball game scoring a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49. The network’s broadcast of the earlier LA Clippers vs Detroit game landed in the Top 3 of the night as well with a 0.5 and 1.237 million viewers. Meanwhile, a special episode of The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” raked in a 0.5 on the network, two-tenths less than the 0.7 that “Gold Rush” had grabbed the week before.

On HBO, “Real Time with Bill Maher” was able to continue its recent 0.4 streak once again with 1.876 million viewers. In addition, “Rap Game” held steady with yet another 0.3 on Lifetime, while “Bring It!” took the week off.
