How long does a typical NBA basketball game last?

I’m going to my first basketball game on Tuesday night (Detroit Pistons) with my boyfriend. I never watch basketball so I know nothing (boyfriend doesn’t know either, he doesn’t watch basketball).

The game starts at 7:30, and I was wondering how long games generally last. I’m not a big night person, especially because its a school night, and I don’t want to be out that late.

So does anyone know how long a game generally lasts?
