Toronto Raptors

Game 6 win over Boston Celtics is most-watched Toronto Raptors game in 2020 NBA Playoffs

Another Toronto Raptors game, another viewership record.

On Thursday, Sportsnet tweeted that Toronto's double-overtime victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals reached 4.6 million Canadians on its broadcast.

The average audience of 1.6 million viewers makes it the most-watched Raptors game so far in the 2020 NBA Playoffs.

Down 3-2, Game 6 was a must-win for the Raptors in order to keep their season alive. It took a herculean effort from Kyle Lowry, who finished with 33 points, eight rebounds and six assists in 53 minutes of play, as well as some clutch play from Norman Powell, but the Raptors were able to outlast the Celtics in double overtime to force a Game 7.

The Raptors will look to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals for the second season in a row when they take on the Celtics in Game 7 on Friday, Sept. 11 at 9:00 p.m.
