The couple’s attendance was in celebration of the recently announced partnership between the Royal Foundation’s United for Wildlife and Coach Core programs and the league’s NBA Cares global social responsibility program. As stated in a press release to Us Weekly, the partnership will raise awareness about the importance of international wildlife conservation, develop the next generation of conservation leaders, and grow the game of basketball.

Middleton, who already won over NYC earlier in the day by dressing like a true New Yorker in a $1,000 black military-style “Washington” coat by Goat, donned a chic $595 tweed Tory Burch coat, black skinny jeans, and black pumps for the big game. William opted for a more casual look and wore a plaid button-down shirt and dark pants.

Prior to taking her seat at the game, Prince George‘s mom — wearing the same outfit — attended the Conservation Reception at the British consul general’s residence with William, where she met Hilary and Chelsea Clinton. The expectant royal also visited Harlem’s Northside Center for Child Development, while her husband met with President Barack Obama at the White House.

During an interview with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin during the Cavaliers’ practice on Sunday, LeBron James said “it’s a huge honor” to play before the couple.

“The stuff that you read about people like them are only in books growing up,” he said. “And to hear that they’re coming to town to see me play and they want to see me do what I do best, it’s a huge honor.”
