Once again, “Monday Night Raw” failed to capture the top of the Monday cable ratings.

The champion this week was the NBA, with TNT’s broadcast of the Houston Rockets against the Utah Jazz seizing the prime spot on the chart with a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49. This was just a cut above last week’s top performance, when the Brooklyn Nets vs. Philadelphia 76ers grabbed a 1.1. The Milwaukee Bucks battled the Detroit Pistons for second place, scoring a 1.0. Because of this, “Monday Night Raw” on USA was relegated to the third slot with a 0.9 for its 8 p.m. broadcast.

Elsewhere, “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” on VH1 climbed back to 0.8 after weeks at 0.7, while “Teen Mom” on MTV continued at 0.5. “Vanderpump Rules” remained trapped at 0.5 on Bravo, but “Street Outlaws” on Discovery crumbled back to 0.4 from 0.5. “Spring Baking Championship” persisted at 0.3, maintaining its lowest score for the season.
