Something crazy is going to happen during the Celtics-Nets preseason game on Sunday

The NBA is conducting an experiment, and the game will last just 44 minutes (instead of 48).  Each quarter will be 11 minutes rather than 12.

My first though is this: Remember back in 1990 when the Big East tried out a six-foul rule?  The league turned into a mild bloodbath when players were allowed to commit six fouls (instead of 5) in a 40-minute game before be disqualified.

Maybe the NBA has a plan to foul-out players after exactly 5.5 infractions during the 44 minute exhibition?
