One highlight of the evening: Lakers superfan Jack Nicholson - with his usual court-side seat - definitely got a bird’s eye view of the action when Celtics forward Kevin Garnett careened into him during the second quarter. Garnett patted the Batman star on the shoulder after the collision, as Nicholson laughed it off.

Plenty of other famous faces were packed into the stands Thursday, such as A-lister Johnny Depp, Brokeback Mountain star Jake Gyllenhaal, Cougar Town's Courteney and David Arquette, Entourage stars Jeremy Piven and Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mad Men's January Jones, Miami Vice star Don Johnson, and American Idol personalities Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest.


TBS funnyman George Lopez had the last laugh, enjoying the Laker victory two years removed from Boston’s drubbing of the Lakers in the 2008 NBA Finals.

“We finally showed some heart and beat the Celtics,” Lopez said. “This is unbelievable -- I’m just going to try to leave without my car getting turned over.”
