It was the Lakers and Knicks who took priority for Denzel Washington and Spike Lee on Hollywood’s biggest night — the two A-listers skipped the Oscars to catch the NBA teams go at it in L.A.!!!

Washington and Lee ditched stage-side seats at the famed movie award ceremony for courtside ones at Arena on Sunday evening … and didn’t seem one bit displeased with their choice.

The guys were seen sharing a hug before the game … clearly not stressing about missing the Oscars — which were taking place at the same time less than 10 miles away at the Dolby Theatre.

Lee, of course, is a huge Knicks fan — and Denzel is a big Lakers one … and the two talked smack to each other about their teams throughout the contest.

Lee ended up getting the last laugh — the Knicks beat the Lakers 112-108 … though Washington didn’t seem too beat up over it all.

The actors weren’t the only celebs at the game … star boxers Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia, plus Flea, were there too.

In fact, Washington and Davis had a moment with each other before the game, where Denzel voiced some big support for the fighter.

No word if any of the guys made it out to some after-parties following the game … or just headed home to watch NBA highlights.
