On the heels of his visit to Chicago to speak about policing and gun laws, President Barack Obama spent his evening courtside at the Chicago Bulls' season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Obama's presence at the United Center Tuesday night may have spelled good luck for the team; the Bulls beat Cleveland 97-95 after Pau Gasol blocked a layup from LeBron James that could have tied the game in its final seconds. Obama told reporters he was "optimistic" for Chicago's basketball season, according to Sports Illustrated.

Here are some photos of him taking in the game:
