Game 3 of the Thunder-Grizzlies playoff series on Saturday afternoon managed only a 16.9 rating, the second-lowest rating ever for a Thunder playoff game. The lowest rating, 14.5, also was a second-round playoff game on ESPN on a Saturday (May 7, 2011) in Memphis. The poor rating lowered the four-game series average to 22.1, 18 percent lower than the first four games of the Thunder-Lakers series last year.
