NEW YORK (AP) - Portland's victory that sent the new-look Los Angeles Lakers to a 0-2 start was the most-watched telecast in NBA TV history.

The game Wednesday night drew 868,000 viewers, the network said Friday. The largest previous audience for an NBA TV telecast was 847,000 for the debut of "Dream Team," last summer's documentary about the 1992 U.S. Olympic basketball gold medalists.

The previous high for a game was the 835,000 that watched Game 5 of the Memphis-San Antonio playoff series on April 27, 2011.

Combined with the Spurs-Hornets opener, NBA TV had its most-viewed opening night on Wednesday.
