Dell Technologies founder and CEO Michael Dell was courtside at the TD Garden in Boston Thursday night for the Golden State Warriors versus Boston Celtics basketball game, which saw the Celtics come back and clinch their 14th straight victory.

Dell sat alongside several Boston business leaders, including Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge and co-owner Wycliffe Grousbeck during Boston's 92-to-88 victory over Golden State.

The CEO has been making headlines in Massachusetts as of late and is reportedly under contract to buy a penthouse in Boston's tony Back Bay neighborhood. The real-estate buy would be Dell's second in Boston.

Texas-native Dell has been a man on the move in Boston since his company undertook its blockbuster acquisition of EMC, which has headquarters in Hopkinton, Mass., for $58 billion last year. Dell Technologies is now the largest privately held IT firm in the world.

Dell's family foundation, The Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, has also committed $1.4 million to local causes this year to help Boston's low-income youth, according to The Boston Globe. Dell Technologies has sponsorship deals with Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots, and with Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox.

Dell Technologies said it doesn't comment on Michael Dell's personal life such as sporting event attendance or real-estate transactions.
