“Curb Your Enthusiasm” creator Larry David sat courtside for Game 6 of the opening round playoff series between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers, but did not appear to be having a good time.
David has attended a number of Los Angeles sporting events over the years and was presumably rooting for the Clippers, who were eliminated after Kevin Durant lit them up for 50 points in a 129-110 shellacking.
The comedian’s facial expressions ranged from “mildly interested” to “noticeably disappointed,” and a number of fans were quick to point this out.
“Is #LarryDavid enjoying the @LAClippers game?” One fan asked while tweeting a photo of David staring past Clippers forward JaMychal Green.
“Larry David doesn’t look happy,” tweeted another fan who attached a photo of one of the comedian not looking particularly engaged.
David also had a front-row seat to a contentious argument between Draymond Green and an official that led to the Warriors star receiving a technical foul.
The comedian hardly reacted as Green began jumping up and down protesting the technical foul call just a few feet away from him.
The official account of Dime on UPROXX tweeted a clip of the argument with the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” music playing while the camera zooms in on David, and the end result is a thing of beauty.
Other fans were reminded of the famous episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” where David trips Shaquille O’Neal while sitting courtside at a Lakers game.
When the game was over, David stood up and considered putting his hat on, but at the last minute decided against it and just folded his arms as Steve Kerr and Doc Rivers shook hands in front of him.
The Warriors defeated the Clippers 129-110, and will square off against the Houston Rockets in their next playoff series.
Game 1 of Warriors-Rockets is scheduled for Sunday afternoon at Oracle Arena.
