Posted Sunday April 3, 2011 7:43 PM GMT

With a little sporting action seeming to be popular choice in closing out the weekend, the stars turned up in the droves at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon (April 3).

Among those on-hand for the matchup between the hometown Los Angeles Lakers and the visiting Denver Nuggets were Hollywood couples including Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, as well as Ashley Tisdale and boyfriend Scott Speer.

Other stars taking their primo seats during the midday NBA contest included Ellen Pompeo with Chris Ivery, Anna Paquin with Stephen Moyer and "Entourage" co-stars Kevin Connolly and Emmanuelle Chriqui.

With "10,000 BC" beauty Camilla Belle and "Gossip Girl" actress Jessica Szohr also doing their best to root the Kobe Bryant led Lakers to a win, the star power cheering section proved to fall on deaf ears - as Los Angeles ended up on the wrong end of things as they lost by a score of 95-90.
