The Knicks' Summer League debut against the Pelicans was stopped with 7:53 left in the fourth quarter due to an earthquake.
The west coast experienced a 6.9 magnitude earthquake, suspending play at Las Vegas' Tomas & Mack Center. The Pelicans had an 80-74 lead when play was stopped in the fourth quarter. The reported epicenter of the earthquake was in Ridgecrest, Calif., some 230 miles away from Las Vegas.
Both teams left their benches for their respective locker rooms, as the video board and sound speakers above the court swung back and forth.
After a delay of about 25 minutes, the game was officially postponed, then later cancelled.
