ABC continues to dominate with its NBA Finals coverage, with Tuesday night’s Game 4 delivering a strong rating and sweeping aside competitors.

The Oklahoma City versus Miami game was up roughly 9 percent from last year’s Game 4 based on preliminary numbers. The Heat held off the Thunder and are on the verge of locking up the NBA title, leading 3-1 in the best-of-7 series. (ABC would love to see the Thunder rally to extend the excitement).

Meanwhile, Gordon Ramsay couldn’t give a damn. Hell’s Kitchen (5.3 million, 2.2) and MasterChef (5.1 million, 2.0) were about the same as last week (the latter featuring a conniving contestant trying to sabotage a blind contestant’s survival odds by giving her a live crab as her protein last night — fun!). Meanwhile NBC’s Love in the Wild (4.1 million, 1.3) dipped to a season low.
