A preseason NBA game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the host Memphis Grizzlies was called off after three quarters when a fire alarm led to the evacuation of the FedEx Forum.

The NBA, citing player safety, suspended the game about an hour after the evacuation. The Grizzlies led 87-77 (35-23, 20-24, 32-30) before the interruption.

"This is wild," Bucks guard Grayson Allen told Bally Sports Wisconsin. "This is a crazy story you tell somebody, and they don't believe."

The Bucks were playing without two-time reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is rehabilitating a knee injury sustained in the NBA playoffs last summer. He did not make the trip to Memphis.

The Bucks were also without Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday.

Ja Morant had 27 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists when the game got suspended.

Steven Adams made his Grizzlies debut with 11 points, 10 rebounds, and 3 assists.

Jordan Nwora led the Bucks with 16 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals.
