Viggle , the second-screen platform that rewards its members for watching their favorite TV shows, has partnered with the NBA to provide rewards and discounts to fans watching the 2013 NBA Playoffs and The Finals.

Another Monday and another big acquisition announcement in the social TV world.

GetGlue has the bigger audience, but Viggle has the deeper pockets, a publicly-traded company (VGGL) founded by former American Idol exec Robert Sillerman that acquired Loyalize and quickly ramped up an aggressive team.
