The Los Angeles Lakers fell to the Golden State Warriors at the Staples Center on Tuesday night, but attendees Lea Michele and Matthew Paetz didn’t seem to notice.

The couple only had eyes for each other during the game. Sitting courtside, 30-year-old Paetz was spotted feeding chips to the Scream Queens star.

In between snacking, the duo shared smooches and snuggled up. Michele, 29, wore a plunging, tight black top with a gold body chain and couldn’t keep her gaze off her boyfriend of nearly a year.

Michele and Paetz met on the set of her “On My Way” music video in April 2014, around a year after the actress’s love Cory Monteithdied in 2013.

Michele told the Fempire podcast on Tuesday that moving on after Monteith’s tragic passing was difficult, but Paetz makes it easer.

“It’s really, I have to say, that is honestly what I love so much about Matt. That’s honestly what is so incredible about him because at the end of the day, this industry is really tough and the only way to really get through is to create a solid unit. And that’s really what we have been since day one,” she said. “We’ve stood by each other through anything that was thrown our way. He’s such a great man that he would never really let anything like that ever crack our lovely little core that we’ve created.”

She added that Paetz is also “very respectful for the person that I was with. And that again is something that I love so much about him and I really know that Cory would love him too. And that’s all that we really hold within our hearts, and so does everyone else in my life.”
