Utah Jazz rookie point guard Trey Burke made his NBA debut on Wednesday night, so his teammates decided to have some fun with him by letting him run out of the tunnel by himself. Burke noticed pretty quickly and got a good laugh.

Here's another look at the prank, via Reddit:

The rookie had 11 points, one assist, one rebound and one steal in 12 minutes against the New Orleans Pelicans in his first game.

Burke missed the start of the season after breaking his finger in the preseason.
