Miami Heat’s chartered plane made emergency landing

Last night definitely qualifies as a weird night in the NBA. Milwaukee’s momentum came to a grinding halt with a potentially season-ending injury to Andrew Bogut, despite the fact that the Bucks bested the streaking Suns 107-98. The New Jersey Nets won a game by 28 points.

It’s already a bit weird that the Miami Heat have won eight straight games, but everything got a bit stranger when their plane was forced to make an emergency landing. From the Associated Press:

A plane carrying Miami Heat basketball players made an emergency landing early Sunday in Chicago after a mechanic on board became ill, team spokesman Tim Donovan said.
The plane safely landed early Sunday at O’Hare International Airport after the man went into a diabetic coma. The teams’ trainers treated the man while the plane was in the air and he was taken to a local hospital after the landing.
