What happens when you bring Los Angeles to Brooklyn for a night? It becomes the Nets most-viewed and highest rated regular season showing on the YES Network.

The numbers are staggering.

An average 299,000 total viewers tuned in to see the Barclays b-ball and a 3.08 household rating in New York.

The telecast peaked in the 9:45 to 10 p.m. quarter-hour with a 451,000 total viewers and a 4.47 household mark.

By contrast, the previous record for a Nets game on YES record, set in December against the Heat, was 242,000 viewers and a 2.14 household rating.

Overall, YES is seeing a spike in viewership among several key demographics, including males 25 to 54 (up 200 percent) and people 18 to 49 (up 150 percent).
