It’s no secret that Rihanna rides hard for LeBron James.

So when she showed up to Game 1 of the NBA Finals to support Kings JamesCleveland Cavaliers in the hostile confines of Oracle Arena, the Golden State Warriors and Kevin Durant—as well as their fans—should have known she was there looking for a fight.

Two minutes into the fourth quarter, with the series opener already long out of hand, Rihanna—a noted LeBron-stan who cheered hard for him at last year’s NBA Finals— bowed to LeBron, then dabbed on a fan who dared to criticize the vocalist for blocking their view.

A minute and 14 seconds of game time later, she heckled Kevin Durant by shouting “brick!” during a free-throw attempt. Which seemed to prompt a pair of glares from the 2014 MVP.

After the game, Durant claimed he didn’t remember either staredown as he and Stephen Curry had a laugh about the situation.

Then again, maybe he’s just mad Rihanna is a LeBron James fan and not a Kevin Durant fan.

Though her love for LeBron will never be as great as Jeff Van Gundy’s love for her.
