SAN ANTONIO (AP) — An emergency slide accidentally deployed on the San Antonio Spurs charter plane and delayed the team’s flight to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers.

KSAT-TV reports Tuesday’s incident involved a Delta Air Lines jet on the ground. The slide deployed from the side used by service vendors.

The incident delayed the Spurs’ departure by about four hours as Delta provided a replacement plane.

San Antonio on Wednesday night takes on the Cavaliers.

A message left with Atlanta-based Delta wasn’t immediately returned Wednesday.
