NBA Games Are Longer This Year And The League Is OK With That, Stressing Game Flow As More Important

Image result for NBA Games Are Longer This Year And The League Is OK With That, Stressing Game Flow As More ImportantThe length of an average game has become a massive issue in major American professional sports. Major League Baseball is discussing transformative rules changes to shorten their games and appeal to a younger, broader audience. Yet NBA games are quantifiably, marginally longer this year and the league said that it’s okay with that, more concerned with what it termed game flow than adding a little bit of time to its games so far this season.

Through games played on Dec. 6, non-overtime games are a little over two minutes longer this year, per numbers provided by the league, and just under three minutes longer on average if you factor in OT games.
