In the last 10 years, many papers addressed the performance profile of basketball players during match-play. All these studies were synthetized in a recently published systematic review. It has been shown that during live playing time across 40-min matches, male and female basketball players travel 5–6 km at average physiological intensities above lactate threshold and 85% of maximal heart rate. Games are mainly characterized by a live time / stoppage time ratio of 1:1. Basketball games are characterized by a decrease of the activity demand towards the end of the game due to possible fatigue-related mechanisms and tactical strategies, which increases [...]
