Actor Mark Wahlberg was in attendance at the Staples Center Thursday night for the Bulls’ game against the Lakers wearing a “Jimmy Buckets” t-shirt and a pair of Jimmy Butler sneakers.

The celebrity friends even snapped a pregame photo.

Butler put on a show for his Hollywood friend as he scored a game-high 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in a 114-91 Bulls win.

The two have made their friendship known via social media, and Wahlberg even recently encouraged his Twitter followers to vote for Butler as an All-Star game starter.

Despite Wahlberg’s help, Butler didn’t make the cut as a starter, though he was named to the team as a reserve.

Wahlberg’s latest movie, “Daddy’s Home” hit theaters last month.
