NEW YORK (AP) - Television ratings for the NBA finals are holding up from last year even though Lakers-Magic isn’t as glamorous a matchup as the 2008 series between Los Angeles and the Boston Celtics.

ABC said Wednesday that Orlando’s 108-104 win Tuesday night in Game 3 earned a 10.1 overnight rating. That’s down 6 percent from the 10.8 for last season’s Game 3, which featured a Celtics team with far more tradition and a bigger market than the Magic.

Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program. Overnight ratings measure the nation’s largest markets.
