Playing Rihanna Makes a Splash at NBA Finals as She Taunts Players

If the singer's daring outfit didn't get her noticed, it was the large amount of screaming she did from her courtside seat.

Announcer Jeff Van Gundy was mesmerized by the “What Now” singer, causing him to miss a monster of a dunk from LeBron James.

"I don't know about this — Rihanna just walked in from of me,” he said. “Are you kidding me?”

Early on, she bowed down to her favorite player, Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James, as his team took on the Golden State Warriors.

The “Umbrella” singer also ignited a feud with Warriors star Kevin Durant.

As he was about to take a free throw, she tried to distract him by yelling "brick!" — a basketball term for a badly missed shot.

Durant ignored the singer’s heckling and made the shot. He then stared her down as he ran back down the court.

Later in the game, after scoring a 3-pointer, the player again gave Rihanna an icy glare.

In the postgame news conference following the Warriors' 113-91 victory, Durant didn’t want to talk about it.

He rolled his eyes as he was questioned about his facial expressions toward the singer.

“I don’t even remember that,” he claimed. “I don’t want to get in that trap.”

The Cavaliers may have lost the game but Rihanna still showed her love for LeBron., who's known as "King James."

"It doesn’t matter b****, the King is still in the house,” she exclaimed as she walked past the Cavs locker room after the game.

Rapper Jay Z, actor/comedian Kevin Hart, and Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch were also in attendance for the Warriors' victory.
