Was there something between Golden State Warriors star forward Kevin Durant and Rihanna on the court last night?

When a reporter called Durant out for looking “towards the crowd towards Rihanna” in the fourth quarter after hitting a three-pointer with just over four minutes left to give the Warriors a 105-84 lead, he shook his head.

“Don’t get in that trap!” teammate Steph Curry told Durant during a press conference following the Warriors 113-91 Game 1 NBA Finals win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday.

Rihanna, who was sitting court side, basically stole the show from LeBron James, Steph Curry and Kevin Durant.

Even ESPN/ABC commentator Jeff Van Gundy, couldn’t contain his excitement: “I don’t about this, but Rihanna just walked in front of me. Are you kidding me?” he said.

And the Twittersphere was certain Durant couldn’t keep his eyes off of Riri, either.

But when asked about the on-court interaction with the 29-year-old songstress, Durant couldn’t recall the moment.

“I don’t even remember that,” Durant said.

“I’m cool,” he added. “Have fun with that.”
