Rihanna’s entrance even outshone one of LeBron James’ highlight-worthy slam dunks in the first quarter. ESPN commentator Jeff Van Gundy got sidetracked from the game and said, “Rihanna just walked in front of me! Are you kidding me?” The other announcer jokingly scolded Van Gundy saying, “Stay with the game. LeBron makes a spectacular play like this, and that’s what you deal with.”

Later in the fourth quarter, the Grammy winner, who stunned in an all-black outfit, once again proved she was the real MVP of the game when she got up and cheered for the Cavs. After her team hit a shot, she bowed down and dabbed for the crowd.

Unfortunately for RiRi, the Cavaliers fell to the Warriors 91 to 113. After the game, she was heckled by some Warriors fans about her team’s loss. “It doesn’t matter, bitch,” she shot back.
