The NBA players and owners met for about six-and-a-half hours Thursday evening, breaking for the night around 9:30 ET according to a tweet from ESPN's Chris Broussard.  According to Broussard, talks will begin again at 10:30 ET Friday morning.

According to an earlier tweet from Broussard, the talks have moved into discussion of the hotly-contested issue of the split of Basketball Related Income.  "Next round of talks will center on BRI," Broussard wrote. "Players intent on staying at 52%"

This issue is generally expected to be the toughest hurdle to clear as the league and the players attempt to save as much of the NBA's regular season as possible.
