NEW ORLEANS — Who passed this guy the ball?

A Pelicans fan was able to sneak onto the court at the Smoothie King Center Friday night before the Pels beat the Rockets — and he even got to throw a warm-up shot!

How’d he do it?

According to Sports Blog Nation, the fan was dressed in full Pelicans warm-up gear and was sitting courtside. As you see in the video below, he casually walks on to the field, begins stretching, then somehow convinces a Pelicans player to pass him the ball. He threw a warm up shot or two before security finally realized what was happening.
