It was a reunion of sorts Monday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, as the main cast members of “He Got Game” were in attendance.

Denzel Washington, who starred as Jake Shuttlesworth in the 1998 basketball classic, sat courtside next to director Spike Lee, the writer and director of the film.

And of course there was Jesus Shuttlesworth, I mean, Ray Allen, who at 38-years-old is still starring in the NBA as a guard for the Miami Heat.

Lee was sporting a No. 34 Shuttlesworth Lincoln High School jersey that Allen wore in the movie.

The three met up prior to the game, which Miami won to take a 3-1 lead in the series, and hopefully they got a chance to talk more about the expected “He Got Game” sequel.
