New Zealand's Steven Adams has found some solid scoring form for the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA

It's unclear, however, if oddsmakers have factored in the stressful effects of the Thunder's flight to Chicago, which center Steven Adams called "a rough flight, to say the least", in a Twitter post. Adams attached a photo of the nose of the twinjet Boeing 757-200, which appeared dented as if the plane hit something so hard it caused the nose to invert.

The Oklahoma City Thunder's plane is believed to have collided with a bird in mid-flight.

If you do an internet search for this type of crash, you'll find they're not uncommon because the nose of the plane is constructed from softer materials than the rest of the plane.

A spokesperson for the Oklahoma City Thunder told The Oklahoman newspaper that all of its players, staff and coaches were safe.




Delta Airlines spokeswoman Elizabeth Wolf said maintenance was evaluating the situation and the damage was likely caused by a collision with a bird.

Small forward Carmelo Anthony posted a picture of the battered plane on his Instagram account reassuring fans everyone on board was OK. "Safety is Delta's top priority".

The Oklahoma City Thunder are getting ready to take on the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night in Chicago, where the Oklahoma team is projected to win by nearly eight points.

Patrick Patterson said the Thunder hit Superman.
