A year ago a game between the Boston Celtics [1] and Atlanta Hawks [2] was hardly worth a second look. On Wednesday night, the telecast of the postseason rematch was the highest rated regular season game in Comcast SportsNet history.

The final half hour, which included Paul Pierce’s game-winning heroics, was the top rated program on Boston television, beating out network hits such as House and Law & Order. The game drew an estimated 245,000 households in New England and 163,000 in the Boston market alone.

The next Celtics telecast on Comcast SportsNet is Friday’s game against the Denver Nuggets [3].
