Justin Timberlake and Houston Texans star J.J. Watt sat courtside together on Thursday night for the Rockets’ Game 5 matchup against the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.
The pair were seen laughing it up and having fun throughout the critical matchup, and seemed real impressed when Chris Paul drained a contested 3-pointer late in the game.

Timberlake and Watt were just a few stars in attendance to watch the Rockets beat the Warriors 98-94, and honor the victims of the Santa Fe High School shooting before the game — something both Timberlake and Watt have played a big part in. The Rockets provided tickets for more than 300 seniors from the high school to attend the game.
Watt reached out to the high school just hours after the shooting that left 10 dead and another 10 injured at the high school just miles southeast of Houston and offered to pay for the funerals for the victims. Timberlake held a concert at the Toyota Center on Wednesday night, and wore a “Santa Fe Strong” shirt at the end and asking fans raise their cell phones to “light up the whole arena, this whole city up for Santa Fe High School,” according to the Houston Chronicle.
