The Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics participated in an experimental, 44-minute preseason game on Sunday afternoon at Barclays Center.

The teams played four 11-minute quarters as opposed to the usual 12 minutes, with two timeouts being eliminated from the game (the third mandatory timeout in the second and fourth quarters).

“You noticed it a little bit when you are subbing at the start of quarters, but I thought the flow with one less minute was actually a little bit better in the second and fourth,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.
