Chris Brown and Rihanna were spotted on Christmas Day sitting courtside at a Lakers game in Los Angeles.

They left the Staples Center holding hands as the Lakers beat the New York Knicks 100-94.

In a report from AP, Kobe Bryant engineered a second-half comeback, the defense stepped up, and Los Angeles beat the New York Knicks 100-94 , extending its winning streak to five games.

"We're .500," a smiling Dwight Howard said. "We did it on Christmas, too. I knew this day would come."

Bryant scored 34 points in his NBA-record 15th Christmas Day game and Metta World Peace added 20 points and seven rebounds while defending Carmelo Anthony, whose 34 points led the Knicks. Anthony said he hyperextended his left knee, but expects to play on Wednesday in Phoenix.

Bryant, the league's leading scorer, has topped 30 or more points in nine straight games.

"If you're going to play on Christmas, it's always better to win. Makes it all worthwhile," said Bryant, who would soon hop a flight to Denver, getting there ahead of the Nuggets, who played the Clippers in the other half of the holiday doubleheader at Staples Center.

The Lakers improved to 14-14 — 9-9 under new coach Mike D'Antoni — and upped their holiday record to 21-18, including 13-9 at home. They returned to .500 for the first time since they were 8-8 on November 30.

This picture does not reflect a woman badly beaten and seeking to stay as Far Away from her Abuser as possible. Seems more like they 'fought' and it got in the Public eye and rihanna chose her career over Chris until the Guilt of what actually occurred that night consumed her.

This explains why she is constantly running behind Chris Brown even though she knows he has a Girlfriend!

Its her life i guess.

As a Barbadian I find this whole thing most offensive.
It just doesn't reflect well of her choices.
Could this be the beginning of a new 'Ike and Tina Turner' style relationship with repeated beatings?
She could have just about any man on the planet. She is attractive, rich and popular.
Why him?

Really?? The piece and the title have little to do with each other. Other than the first 2 sentences, this is a sports piece - the title is misleading. Where is the editor of the newspaper?
