Here’s how it will work…

In basketball, if a team is ahead by 35 or more in the last nine minutes of a game, running time will be used.

In football, if one team is up by 35 in the fourth quarter, running time will be used.

In both cases, regular time will be used if that 35-point lead is cut to less than 30.
