Houston Rockets Rumors
The return of the NBA playoffs to the Monday cable ratings meant that the WWE was forced to fall back from the chart’s top slots. ESPN held all three of the highest performances of the night, starting with the Golden State Warriors defeating the Portland Trail Blazers. The game scored a 2.8 rating in adults 18-49, handily defeating the top game from two weeks ago, in which the Warriors played the Houston Rockets for a 2.6. In second place, “NBA Courtside” picked up a strong 1.4, and “SportsCenter Late” followed close behind at 1.3.

Predictably, the Friday cable ratings were dominated by the NBA. TNT staked its claim on the top two slots of the chart with its playoffs broadcasts, starting with the Toronto Raptors playing the Milwaukee Bucks. The game scored a 1.6 rating in adults 18-49, putting it a full 1.0 beneath the Warriors vs. Rockets game at the top of last week.
The Houston Rockets’ Twitter account, along with the accounts of several college football teams, was suspended Monday afternoon. “Our Twitter account has been temporarily suspended due to a few prior social media posts with copyrighted music,” the Rockets said in a statement. “We are working to correct the issue now.”
