Seconds, Anyone?

Question from a popular Q&A siteIs there an extra second in an NBA quarter?

When the clock goes from seconds to tenth/seconds at the 1:00 mark, shouldn’t the clock go from 1:00 to 58.9 (59)?It seems that counting down from 1:00 to 59.9 is the same as counting the 1 minute mark twice, so in effect there would be 4 extra seconds in an NBA game.

Am I missing something?

WIDTS: Yes you’re missing something. It’s called logic and reasoning as well as a grasp of basic math.
