NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Donald Sterling saga is drawing many more viewers to the Los Angeles Clippers' NBA playoff series against the Golden State Warriors.

Sunday's Game 4 was the first time the teams took the court after a recording of the Clippers owner's racist comments surfaced a day earlier. It drew 6.5 million viewers on ABC, up a whopping 48 per cent from the 4.4 million who watched Game 1 on the network just over a week prior.

Then Tuesday's Game 5 was played hours after NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced a lifetime ban for Sterling and plans to try to force him to sell the team. More than 4.7 million viewers watched on TNT, up 34 per cent from an average of 3.5 million for the previous two games on the network during the series.
