Opting for a night of basketball action, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden took to their courtside seats at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (December 29).
With Joel sporting a shirt honoring the recent death of Avenged Sevenfold drummer James Sullivan, the cute couple dutifully cheered on the Lakers to a 124-118 win over the Golden State Warriors.
Looking very much in love, Richie and Madden laughed and held one another throughout the duration of the basketball matchup.
Meanwhile, the twosome will be among the many heading to Las Vegas for the New Year's festivities - as they'll be co-hosting a party at Lavo on Thursday night (December 31).
