The Celtics’ team plane landed safely in Oklahoma City on Saturday. A team spokesman said the Celtics became aware of the threat while the flight was airborne, ESPN reported.
According to Tim Martin of WFXT, the plane made it to Oklahoma City as scheduled, with the FBI and local law enforcement looking into the threat. Martin also reported that a Celtics spokesman said there was no evidence of a bomb on the plane.
The FBI's Oklahoma City field office said late Saturday that a thorough search of the aircraft "did not locate an explosive device" and that the agency is investigating the incident.
Celtics forward Jae Crowder posted a short video to his Instagram page showing police lights flashing next to the team plane with the caption, “Bomb threat on us.”
Crowder also tweeted about the incident, saying the team was fine.
The Celtics face the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Sunday night. Boston lost 101-94 at home Friday night to the Toronto Raptors.
