It was a star-studded event at the NBA basketball game on March11, 2012, as the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Boston Celtics 97-94. From Spiderman actor Tobey Maguire to soccer star David Beckham, a number of celebrities enjoyed watching the the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Boston Celtics.

The Los Angeles Lakers were looking for a last-minute basket to hold off the Boston Celtics and it was Kobe Bryant who suggested that Andrew Bynum should take the final shot. Andrew leaped at the opportunity to deliver the final basket and seal their triumph against their long-time NBA rivals.

Associated Press reported that Bryant scored 10 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter and hit a go-ahead jumper with 41.7 seconds to play, and Bynum's hook shot over Kevin Garnett capped the Lakers' 97-94 victory Sunday.

Watching the game was musician Seal with his seven-year-old daughter Leni who looked like she thoroughly enjoyed the game. Dressed in jeans and black suit jacket, the 49-year-old singer looked like he was keen to spend some time with his daughter following his recent split with supermodel Heidi Klum.
