ORLANDO,FL (BRPROUD)- While the New Orleans Pelicans are playing in the NBA bubble far way from home, New Orleans Saints and Pelicans owner sent the team a New Orleans style feast.

The players enjoyed crawfish, jambalaya, red fish and more.

“Thank you for making sure we’re eating good in the bubble. We don’t get too many choices in here,” said point guard Lonzo Ball.

The Pelicans lost 122-113 against the San Antonio Spurs on August 10, ending their time in the NBA bubble.

New Orleans were eliminated from playing in the playoffs when the Portland beat Philadelphia 124-121 later on August 10.
