ESPN scored the top spot of the night in the Friday cable ratings last week, with its broadcast of the Boston vs Oklahoma City NBA basketball game raking in a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49. The network’s broadcast of the earlier game between Cleveland and Washington also landed high in the night with a 0.7. Some late-night, special editions of “SportsCenter” scored several other spots throughout the Top 25 as well, with 0.6 – 0.2 ratings.

The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” managed to maintain its previous 0.7 for the second week in a row, while “Real Time with Bill Maher” also held steady after grabbing another 0.4 on HBO. In addition, A&E’s “Live PD” continued to perform well for itself by raking in a 0.6 once again.
