How long is a basketball game?

A basketball game (NBA) is technically only 48 minutes. However, with half-time, timeouts, fouls, and close games, a basketball game is actually around 2 1/2 hours. The game is divided into 4 quarters, each 12 minutes long. Should the score be tied at the end of the fourth quarter, the game will go into a 5 minute overtime period. Should the game be tied at the end of overtime, there will be a 5 minute second overtime, and so on. College basketball games are 40 minutes, with no quarters but instead two 20 minute halves. If the score is tied at the end of regulation, the game will proceed into a five minute bonus period called overtime, similar to the NBA.

What happens if the score is tied after the end of the basketball game?

I'll start off guessing you've just become a basketball fan because this is pretty basic stuff. But to answer your question, they go to overtime which is only 5 minutes long instead of 12 minutes for a normal quarter. If the teams are tied again, they go to second overtime, then triple overtime, quadruple overtime, and so on. For just an interesting fact, the longest NBA game was on TV for 4 hours, with six overtimes. The finalscore was only 75-73, which isn't much score even for a normal game.
