In fact, the Lakers, Heat game was the most-watched non-Christmas Day regular season NBA game on ABC.

Sunday’s game was viewed by more than seven million people. The previous record holder for ABC’s highest-rated non-Christmas regular-season game was the Celtics-Lakers match-up last year with a 4.3.
