Michelle Obama and the girls hit the Lakers-Celtics game and more

June 16, 2010 |  6:46 am

First Lady Michelle Obama hit Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday, watching from a luxury box with daughters Sasha and Malia as the L.A. Lakers beat the Boston Celtics to tie the series, 3-3.

Mobama detail The family on Sunday flew north to Hollywood from San Diego after stopping by Camp Pendleton so Mom could speak to military families, Top of the Ticket reports; the ladies had dinner that night at Lucques with chef-owner Suzanne Goin and others, according to USA Today.

The first lady also had TMZ running Monday night when she hit Osteria Mozza, leaving shortly after Ryan Seacrest did -- apparently the big guns, security-wise, were happy to let the radio host and "American Idol" icon hit the road on his own while they took care of bigger business.

When the first lady, et al, exited, a California Highway Patrol car, four SUVs and about half a dozen CHP motorcycle cops kept things in line, TMZ said.

On Tuesday before the game, the trio hit classic hot-dog-joint Pink's, L.A. Now reports, where they dined without being hassled and got a round of applause as they departed.
