The rim at Thomas & Mack Center was already shaking as Allonzo Trier knifed his way to the basket and flushed a one-handed slam.

Those two points would be the last of the night, as a 7.1 magnitude earthquake rattled Las Vegas (and much of Southern California), forcing the NBA to postpone Summer League action for precautionary reasons.

The New York Knicks were trailing the New Orleans Pelicans 80-74 early in the fourth quarter when the tremors began.

Trier finished with 21 points in just 23 minutes. The former Arizona Wildcats standout went 8 for 14 from the field, including a trio of triples, looking like the best player on the floor.

Former UA teammate Kadeem Allen started alongside Trier and had four points and two assists on eight shots.

New Orleans rookie and No. 1 pick Zion Williamson had 11 points in nine minutes, including several thunderous dunks, before suffering a knee injury that held him out of the second half.

Earlier Friday, former UA guard Brandon Randolph and the Minnesota Timberwolves knocked off the Cleveland Cavaliers, 85-75, but Randolph did not play.

Rawle Alkins (Rockets, 6 p.m. PT) and Brandon Ashley (Kings, 8 p.m. PT) are set to play Saturday assuming the earthquake hasn’t mucked up the schedule.
