Warriors forward Kevin Durant was unfazed by, perhaps, the only hardcore Cavaliers fan in Oakland last night. Throughout game, pop star Rihanna, sitting courtside, was all about trying to get under Durant's skin. The singer is reportedly a huge LeBron James fan, but maybe hasn't learned that heckling a superstar usually doesn't end in your favor (lookin' at you, Spike Lee).

LeBron led the Cavs in scoring with 28 and Kyrie Irving added 24 in the loss. Steph Curry had 28 and 10 assists to help the Warriors go up 1-0 in the series, but it was most definitely Durant's night. Undeterred by Rihanna's yelling, stalking the court, or even her dabbing, Durant dropped 38 on 14 for 26 shooting with 8 boards and 8 assists. He was also 3 for 6 from behind the arc, including one particular three where he appeared to have turned to stare down the heckler. Take a look:

What's the lesson learned here? Well, no matter how many Grammy's you have, it's never a good idea to heckle Kevin Durant.
