by Mel Bracht Published: February 19, 2013

One of the Thunder's most-hyped games of the year, against the Miami Heat on TNT, topped the week with a disappointing 11.8 rating (percent of TV homes). It didn't come close to the team's first meeting — 23.3 on Christmas Day on ABC — or even the Thunder's best TNT rating, 14.9 against Dallas on Dec. 27. Oklahoma City had TNT's fifth-best rating among metered markets for the NBA All-Star Game with an 11.8. The men's Bedlam game topped the college telecasts with a 7.7 on KOCB-34.
