Unfortunately, there will be no “Bang!” calls for this Sunday’s Game 7 hoops.
Renowned broadcaster Mike Breen will be unavailable to deliver ESPN’s play-by-play voice for the upcoming do-or-die match between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat.
Per Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, Breen tested positive from COVID-19 and is feeling fine amid the illness. There are still hopes that he’ll be healthy and active to return once the Game 1 of the 2022 NBA Finals tips-off.
With that, Mark Jones was reported to leave the network’s radio calling and will fill Breen’s position as the temporary lead man of the television crew. He’ll join Mark Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy on the sidelines.
Both Celtics and the Heat are knotted at 3-3 in this Eastern Conference Finals. The winner will take the Golden State Warriors for the championship crown of this season.
