An emergency slide accidentally deployed on the San Antonio Spurs charter plane and delayed the team's flight to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers on Wednesday night.

KSAT-TV (http://bit.ly/1AhlFaK ) 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.
