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

The Oklahoma City Thunder had a scary situation late Friday night.

The cause of the damage is now unknown, but the Thunder's flight landed at Chicago Midway International Airport at approximately 12:46 a.m. CT. Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger guided the plane onto the icy waters around New York City, leading to the safe disembarkment of all 155 people onboard.

An official spokesperson for Delta, however, said the damage was likely caused by a bird strike while the plane was landing, according to USA Today. She said the Boeing 757-200 landed safely without incident at Chicago's Midway International Airport.

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. "Safety is Delta's top priority".

After disembarking, National Basketball Association stars Carmelo Anthony and Josh Huestis posted pictures of the damage to social media. "30,000 feet up...", Josh Huestis tweeted at 1:09 a.m. central with a photo of the dented nose".

Thankfully no one was injured, and the Thunder players can breathe easy and give a little thanks, as Carmelo Anthony did in his Instagram post. "Thank God the OKC Thunder team plane landed safely after hitting something in the sky".
