The top of the Monday cable ratings were once again the domain of the NBA and TNT.

At the very peak of the chart, the Portland Trail Blazers went to battle against the Denver Nuggets as the second phase of the NBA Playoffs continued. The game scored a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49, improving significantly on the 1.2 picked up by last week’s top game, in which the Houston Rockets played the Utah Jazz.

In second place, the Philadelphia 76ers faced off against the Toronto Raptors, scoring a 1.4. VH1 managed to capture the third slot with “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” which held onto the 0.8 it rose to last week.

“Monday Night Raw” continued to struggle to return to its place at the top of the chart, peaking at 0.8. This was down one-tenth of a point from its previous outing. “Vanderpump Rules” on Bravo ascended to 0.6 from 0.5, breaking free of its usual mold, while “Teen Mom” on MTV remained trapped at 0.5. “Street Outlaws” on Discovery also continued at 0.4, mirroring “Spring Baking Championship” on Food Network, which once again flatlined at 0.3.
