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.
