On Saturday night at Madison Square Garden, Jayson Tatum played the Knicks with a familiar face in town.

The Boston Celtics defeated the New York Knicks 113-118, and Ben Stiller was present. After the game, the celebrated actor—best known for his roles in comedies like Zoolander, Tropic Thunder, Meet the Parents, and Dodgeball—caught up with Tatum.

Stiller, a native of New York City, witnessed Tatum and the C's make history against the Knicks, his personal team. With 27 made 3-pointers, Boston broke their previous total of 25, which it had established against Philadelphia last season. With six of those threes coming from him, Tatum finished with 26 points. The Celtics play the Grizzlies tomorrow night.
