Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon made a court-side appearance together Sunday night at the L.A. Lakers home game at the Staples Center.

Each wearing gray tops, the couple chowed down on nacho chips as the Lakers pummelled the Portland Trailblazers 100-86. It’s the Los Angeles team’s sixth consecutive victory, and 15th on their home turf this season.

Witherspoon, 32, began dating gay fave Gyllenhaal in April 2007, prior to the release of their co-starring film Rendition.

Last month the couple were photographed having an intimate dinner to celebrate Jake’s 28th birthday.

However, following her seven-year marriage to her Cruel Intentions co-star Ryan Phillippe, Reese told Parade magazine in November, “Obviously, I’m not far enough out of being married to think about doing it again. You sort of reconstitute your family. You find a family, with people who come into your life for a reason.”

Are you buying Reese’s excuse, or is it just a cover?
