Anthony Davis returned to the Pelicans lineup on Friday night for the first time since requesting a trade. He was welcomed back with loud boos during player introductions.

Davis was booed again the first time he touched the ball during the game too, but quickly forgave him after his first bucket.

Davis finished the game with 32-points and spent the fourth quarter on the bench. Dropping 30+ a game is good way to get those boos to go away.
Despite Davis spending the fourth quarter on the bench, New Orleans beat the Timberwolves 122-117.
