30 minutes is about three-fifths as long as a Basketball game.
In other words, it's 0.6250 times the length of a Basketball game, and the length of a Basketball game is 1.60 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.
