Jamie Foxx was among those on hand Sunday to watch the New Orleans Pelicans defeat the Phoenix Suns in Game 4 of their first-round playoff series, and the Academy Award winner even walked away with a gift afterward.
Brandon Ingram produced a game-high 30 points while Jonas Valanciunas had 26 points and 15 rebounds to lead the Pelicans to the 118-103 victory. With the win, the Pelicans tied up the series at two games apiece as the two teams head back to Phoenix for Game 5 on Tuesday.
Foxx caught up with the Pelicans in the locker room after the contest to congratulate them on their win. He was seen talking with Jose Alvarado and the actor was even gifted his jersey. The two have a previous connection to Atlanta when Alvarado played in college at Georgia Tech.
He gave a nice message to Alvarado, who had five points and two steals.

Alvarado burst onto the scene in the middle of the season with the Pelicans after going undrafted last year. He has impressed with his infectious energy and effort off the bench and has quickly become a fan favorite in New Orleans.
Foxx is among those impressed with Alvarado.
