60 minutes is about one-and-one-fourth times as long as a Basketball game
In other words, it's 1.25 times the length of a Basketball game, and the length of a Basketball game is 0.8 times that amount.
(NBA regulation; playing time only)
Per National Basketball Association rules , a basketball game (without an overtime) consists of four periods of 12 minutes each, for a total of 48 minutes of playing time. The first basketball game, played in a Springfield Massachusetts YMCA, was played in two 15-minute halves and ended with a score of 1-0.
