PBT Extra: Long layoff before Finals will mean rust to start
The NBA didn’t expect this long a layoff before the NBA Finals started (a Game 7 in the conference finals would have happened Sunday). But once it became clear there would be a break of a week or more, the NBA tried to move up the date. It couldn’t.
Jenna Corrado and I discuss what that break means, both on and off the court.
Expect a rusty first half Thursday night.
