Clippers-Lakers Exhibition Game Draws Large TV Audience

Maybe the best way to drum up interest in your league is to have a lockout afterall! The NBA, fresh off the heels of a lockout and still reeling a bit from weeks of drama around the trade of Chris Paul, enjoyed some encouraging renewed interest as the Clippers - Lakers preseason exhibition drew some impressive numbers in viewership. 

As @HowardBeckNYT predicted, Clippers-Lakers was most-watched preseason game on NBA TV. 509,000 viewers, tops 501K for Heat's Big 3 debut.
