Well, don't these two make a handsome courtside couple?!

One Direction's Liam Payne stepped out with his girlfriend Sophia Smith on Thursday, Jan. 16 at London's O2 Arena, where the lovebirds looked cozy while attending a basketball match between the Brooklyn Nets and the Atlanta Hawks.

Cuddling close with their arms intertwined, the good-looking duo stayed by each other's sides as they watched the game, taking a moment to pause and pose for pics, both flashing their stunning smiles.

Although she was only attending a casual sporting event, Smith still brought the glam factor with her sexy ensemble, rocking black leather pants, a matching shirt and high-heeled pumps, wearing her long brunette locks pulled up in a sleek half-up style.

Payne was also sporting all-black attire, although he first arrived wearing a trendy gray jacket with a fur-trimmed collar.

But the 1D stud wasn't the only famous face to attend the basketball match, which saw the Nets beating the Hawks with a score of 127 to 110.

Ellie Goulding was also photographed on the court in a fit of giggles after the game and was even caught mid-match on the kiss cam—although the British pop star apparently refused to give her guest a smooch!

"Apparently big faux pas to not kiss on kisscam @NBA sorry!! Ha next time!," she wrote to which the official NBA Twitter replied, "We'll hold you to that."

And even models Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn were also present, as evidenced by Ellie's star-studded Instagram snap.

"Well this was bloody fun," she captioned the black and white shot.

Looks like the O2 Arena was the place to be last night!
