The earthquake was centered near Ridgecrest, California, the same place where a 6.4-magnitude earthquake hit on Thursday.

The earthquake rattled Las Vegas' Thomas & Mack Center, causing the scoreboard and speakers over the court to sway, and the league officials decided in favor of caution.

The New Orleans Pelicans and New York Knicks were early in the fourth quarter of their opening-day game when the earthquake hit. The Pelicans were ahead 80-74 with 7:53 left, and both teams left the court. It started as a delay with the hope the game could resume, but after further discussion, the Pelicans-Knicks game and Denver Nuggets-Phoenix Suns games were postponed.

ZION DEBUT: Williamson impresses in abbreviated Summer League appearance

LATEST NEWS: Southern California earthquake could be largest in 20 years

Summer League games in the Cox Pavilion next door to the Thomas & Mack Center continued, mainly because that gym does not have a scoreboard and speakers over the court. But the NBA eventually stopped the Orlando Magic-San Antonio Spurs, with Orlando ahead 75-59, as a precaution.

The NBA later announced that all three of those games would not be played. The Pelicans and the Magic were declared winners.

The Athletic reported that Commissioner Adam Silver wanted to have a structural engineer examine the two arenas before deciding whether to hold the remaining scheduled games. Summer League officials said late Friday that Saturday's games were still on schedule, but they wanted to make sure the arenas were safe for fans and players.

NBA players tweeted from their hotels in Las Vegas.

"I never got dressed so fast in my life," Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tweeted.

The earthquake was also felt in Los Angeles during the fourth inning of the Dodgers game against the San Diego Padres, though play continued.

Dwayne Johnson and Other Stars Shaken by 'Loooong' 6.4 Earthquake in Southern California A 6.4 magnitude earthquake shook Southern California around 10:30 a.m. on the Fourth of July, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The quake's epicenter was near Searles Valley in the Mojave Desert, which is northeast of Los Angeles County. Some celebrities immediately took to Twitter following the quake, including Ava DuVernay, Michael Chiklis, LaToya Jackson — even "The Walking Dead." "Been living in Los Angeles all my life. That was the longest earthquake I've ever experienced," DuVernay tweeted. "Not jerky. Smooth and rolling. But it was loooong. It was so long I thought for the first time ever 'Is this the big one?' Damn. Respect Mother Nature. She's the boss.

California Highway Patrol Lt. John Williams says officials have found cracks on several roads in the county, but overpasses and underpasses are in good "This type of earthquake is much more normal The long term average is probably once every five or 10 years somewhere in Southern California ."

The quake was detected by California 's new ShakeAlert system and it provided 48 seconds of warning to the seismology lab well before the shaking arrived at Pomeroy urged the estimated 2,000 people in the region hit by the quake who have California Earthquake Authority insurance policies to contact

Dodgers second baseman Enriquè Hernàndez was batting at the time, but it didn't appear to affect him or Padres pitcher Eric Lauer.

"He didn't know what was going because he didn't feel (the earthquake) either," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said at a postgame news conference. "He was kind of wondering what all the ruckus was all about."

The temblor was felt at multiple minor league baseball games in Southern California, including the home ballpark of the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. The Dodgers' Corey Seager and A.J. Pollock are on a rehab stint with the Class A Quakes. The minor league Fresno Grizzlies also tweeted about the earthquake, which occurred while the Tacoma Rainiers were throwing a perfect game.

Play was halted with 21.2 seconds left in the first half as the Washington Mystics played the Las Vegas Aces at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center. After a lengthy delay, officials announced the WNBA contest would be postponed.
