Jazz players react to 5.7 magnitude earthquake near Salt Lake City

Jazz, Earthquake

Utah Jazz players reacted to a 5.7 magnitude earthquake in Magna, a metro township city in Salt Lake County. The 7:10 a.m. earthquake was reportedly felt throughout parts of northern Utah and southern Idaho.

According to Logan City Police Dispatch, there were no damages as a result of the quake, besides a few startled residents, per ABC News — including members of the Jazz.

Fan-favorite froward Joe Ingles was among the first to feel it, as teammate Royce O’Neale chipped in within the comments section:

Newcomer Jordan Clarkson, who was traded to the Jazz earlier this year, wasn’t far behind:

Even the young Tony Bradley Jr. got his slumber interrupted by the quake:

O’Neale chimed in again on his Twitter account, woken wide awake like many of his fellow residents:

This was the largest earthquake to hit the state since 1992, a 5.9 magnitude earthquake in St. George, according to the Utah Emergency Management from the Department of Public Safety

If news of two of their players being infected with the novel coronavirus wasn’t enough, Jazz players like Ingles, Clarkson, Bradley, and O’Neale were startled by a rough wake-up call on Wednesday, feeling their beds shake to their core.

The earthquake lasted about 15 seconds, enough for Jazz players to take to Twitter and see reactions from their teammates, who are also waiting for the 2019-20 season to resume.
