The game was postponed in the fourth quarter as the Vegas area was rocked by the effects of a 7.1-magnitude natural disaster.

Games in UNLV's other gym, the Cox Pavilion, could continue because that gym lacks an overhead scoreboard.

"I never remember them coming like this two days in a row", said New York Knicks coach and California native David Fizdale, who is no stranger to quakes. Many fans began leaving just as the quake hit, and more departed when the delay was announced.

It would be inaccurate to say the whole National Basketball Association was watching.

The Pelicans saw great minutes from Kenrich Williams, Aubrey Dawkins, and surprisingly Kavell Bigby-Williams.

Williamson and Barrett were slow to start off the game, but halfway through the first quarter Zion finally showed the fans what they were waiting for. My partner Albert Hall, the brains of this operation, he ran Adidas Nations and Zion was with him since he was 14 years old.
