Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals will be missing one of its signature voices. ESPN play-by-play announcer Mike Breen will not be on the call for the first time all series due to a positive COVID test.
Breen has called the first six games of the East finals. He's expected to be replaced by Mark Jones, who calls play-by-play for NBA games for ESPN throughout out the regular season and playoffs. Jones will be joined by Mark Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy on the broadcast.
Per an ESPN spokesperson, Breen feels well. He's expected to return for Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday, June 2.
