Even if the New Orleans Pelicans have been eliminated from the playoffs, Jose Alvarado is still finding a way to sneak in for steals.

The Pelicans guard Jose Alvarado, who became a fan favorite this season, made the funniest surprise cameo Monday on TNT’s “Inside the NBA.” As Kenny Smith raced to the studio’s “Big Board” while dribbling a basketball, Alvarado appeared out of nowhere and stole the ball away. Take a look.
