NBA Likely To Change Finals Format
The NBA is expected to make a major change to its traditional Finals schedule, ending the 2-3-2 format and returning to the 2-2-1-1-1 game rotation used in all other playoff rounds, multiple sources told ESPN.com.
The league's competition committee has voted to recommend the change to the league's board of directors. It is expected to be adopted at the next meeting in October and could be implemented for the 2014 Finals, the sources said.
