NBA Playoffs 2020: Game 4 of Raptors-Nets is most-watched Round 1 playoff game in TSN history

A record-breaking audience tuned in to watch the Toronto Raptors break records and make history in Game 4 of their first round series with the Brooklyn Nets.

As the Raptors shattered their playoff scoring record with a 150-point outburst to earn the first-ever series sweep in franchise history, a record 1.3 million viewers tuned in to watch the game on TSN Sunday night.

On Monday, the network took to Twitter to share the figures, including the 67% increase in viewership from last postseason's Round 1 average on TSN.

As mentioned before, the nature of the NBA's restart means that fans only opportunity to catch the Raps is on a television brodcast, although Sunday's Game 4 would have been a designated road game during more typical circumstances.

With that in mind, Toronto is likely to break more viewership records as it continues its pursuit of a second-consecutive NBA title.

The Raptors are back in action on Thursday, Aug. 27 as they open the second round with the Boston Celtics at 6:30 p.m. ET. We'll provide broadcast information for Game 1 and the rest of the series once it is made available.
