Many Premier League stars made their way courtside at the O2 Arena in London last night to take in the NBA action on offer.

The Brooklyn Nets took on the Atlanta Hawks and Man United, Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal, Spurs, Fulham, Stoke and Aston Villa were all represented in the crowd to enjoy the novel basketball encounter.

Jack Wilshere, Per Mertesacker, Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski, Eden Hazard, David Luiz, Luis Nani, Edin Dzeko, Christian Benteke, Asmir Begovic, Jermain Defoe and Clint Dempsey were just some of the stars that witnessed the Nets claim a 127-110 victory on the night.

One of the biggest cheers of the night came when Robert Pires and his wife were caught on "Kiss Cam", a roving camera that prompts couples to kiss when their image comes up on a screen. The Frenchman duly obliged.

The game was the fourth regular-season NBA match to be played in London in as many years.
