One New Orleans Pelicans fan wasn’t content just to watch the game from his seat during Friday’s game against the Houston Rockets.

In a video widely shared on social media, the fan is seen sneaking onto the court during warmups, pretending to be a Pelicans player. He does a few stretches and even manages to take a shot before police finally catch on and escort him off the court.

It was a lighter moment of a game that spelled the end of All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins' season after he suffered an Achilles injury in the final seconds of the Pelicans' 115-113 win over the Rockets.
