Returning to the NBA Finals for the first time in five years, Kevin Durant made a huge statement last night.
The former MVP scored a game-high 38 points and added eight rebounds and eight assists to lift the Golden State Warriors to a 113-91 rout of the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the Finals in Oakland last night.
But as big as KD's performance was, his exchange with Rihanna managed to overshadow it. While attempting a free throw, KD heard "briiick" shouted out courtside at Oracle Arena, where Bad Gal RiRi was sitting. Although Rihanna's assistant Jenn Rosales was later confirmed to be the heckler, Durant couldn't help but stare down RiRi following a 3-pointer later in the game.
The result? The internet lost its damn mind ... and we're here for every second of it.
That's RiRi in black sitting down courtside.
DAMN! LeBron James did drop 28 points, grab 15 rebounds and dish eight assists, but KD and the Warriors just had too much firepower.
If they weren't fans of KD before, they are now. Was he shooting his shot, though?
Gotta love it!
Too funny. Too real.
This might have been what triggered Durant into glaring at Rihanna.
Rihanna has zero chill ... and we love it.
With Game 1 being a blowout, will KD vs. Rihanna be better than the Warriors vs. Cavs for the rest of this series!? We just hope that Rihanna shows up for Game 2 Sunday night in Oakland.
