On Thursday night the New Orleans Pelicans hosted the Oklahoma City Thunder for a Western Conference showdown. It's been quite the few weeks for the Pelicans and their fans after star Anthony Davis announced he wanted to be traded by the organization.

In the weeks following Davis' trade request, the Los Angeles Lakers emerged as a potential trade partner. However, after the trade deadline came and went, Davis remained a part of the Pelicans.

With Davis still on the team, Pelicans fans are showing their displeasure with the team's star by wearing bags on their head. That's not all, though, as seats remain empty following Davis' attempt to get the team to trade him.

Here's a look at attendance from Thursday night's game against the Thunder.


Clearly fans aren't happy with Anthony Davis and the team's overall performance this season.

New Orleans sits in third-to-last place in the Western Conference and are 6.5 games out of the last playoff spot in the conference.

Despite the team's poor play this season, the team is playing competitively tonight against the Thunder.

New Orleans currently leads 68-65 with under 11 minutes to play in the third quarter.

Meanwhile, Anthony Davis won't return to the game with a shoulder injury.
