Oklahoma City Thunder's Friday night loss to the Timberwolves may have left fans wondering what happened in those final seconds.

Upon landing in Chicago, the players found significant damage to the nose of their Delta charter flight, which had clearly gone head-to-head with something.

Around a century after the Wright flight, the perhaps best-known bird collision led to the "Miracle on the Hudson".

New Zealand player Steven Adams shared photographs of the damage after arriving at Chicago's O'Hare Airport at 1.30am on Saturday after their flight from Minnesota.
