Hollywood star Jack Nicholson watches the Lakers game courtside

In the end it was so quiet you could almost hear Jack Nicholson’s hips click as he rose unhappily from his courtside seat at the match LAKERS-CELTICS.

The crowd had fled for the exits before the end and the old rogue was one of the last to leave, slowly lifting his sunglasses and rubbing his eyes after watching the Los Angeles Lakers suffer their first home play-off defeat 103 v 94 against the great Boston Celtics team. The seven-game series is now tied at 1-1 and it moves to Boston.
