Nick from TBT joins the Dan Dakich Show. Nick talks to DD about the Elam ending. Elam ending is when you play the last part of the game without a game clock. Last year TBT turned off the game clock after the first dead ball under four minutes and then added plus seven to the winning team’s total score.

On bumping total from seven to eight:

"It's funny because in a lot of this research I've been tracking NBA games and NCAA games and I think the settings would very base on the league or the event. I think I have a good starting point for those leagues. But for TBT I don't have the same kind of stock pile, so it's a little shot in the dark. Let’s try out at the under four minute mark add plus eight. That small change from plus seven to plus eight could make for some pretty crazy finishes in TBT this year."

On TBT first time using Elam ending:

"They tried it on an experimental bases in 2017. So 11 games kind of like they play in rounds. That was the first test of their format, they liked it so much that they decided to go all in, in 2018 and use if for their full event last year and they decided to use it again in 2019."
