Bad Gal Riri was pictured looking effortlessly chic in an all black ensemble, front row at Game 1 of the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers match at the Oakland Arena in California, on Thursday.
There were a handful of times Cleveland was more focused on Curry and the 3-point shooters, but Durant made them pay with six first-half dunks.
With Durant on board, the opener of Cavs-Warriors III was a mismatch as Golden State scored the first 13 points of the third quarter to take a 21-point lead and never looked back.
The Cavaliers had 20 turnovers, a joint National Basketball Association record for a play-off or Finals game.
This isn't something up for debate - their pedigrees, their players, and their nearly immaculate playoff runs make it clear that these two teams facing each other in the finals are the very, very best that this sport can offer us.
The Cavaliers took a four-point lead, 12-8, when Irving buried a three-pointer from the left corner and followed up with a driving layup two possessions later, but the Warriors answered with a 12-5 run of their own and took a 20-17 advantage, thanks to Durant's dribble-drives and finishes at the rim.
Klay Thompson was single-handedly responsible for five of those misses as his playoff struggles continued with another tough night shooting as he was just 3-for-16 from the field for six points.
"I'm sure they feel like they could play better but we feel like we can shoot better", Brown said.
Pint-sized amusing man Kevin Hart was also in attendance too.
Lue also said the Cavs got "backwards" the game plan on defense, and were running out to the Warriors' shooters even when Durant had the ball and was heading toward the hoop. "We said before the series started that they're a team that's capable of runs, and they showed that tonight in the third quarter".
"We're just going to have to dig our feet in and be able to guard the basketball", guard Kyrie Irving said.

"Win one game. Now we look to Sunday to try to do it again", Curry told reporters. "It's about us. It's about the Golden State Warriors versus the Cleveland Cavaliers". "That's one of the things that we need, a guy who can go get a bucket and get to the foul line".
Even after the Cavs' 22 point loss in Game 1, Rihanna was more than happy to remind everyone that "the king is still the king".
They still lead Cleveland, 55-45 late in the first half.
Forget about the action on the court during Thursday night's opening game of the NBA Finals, did you catch what Rihanna was up to? "And in transition, I only can get in transition because we got stops and rebounding", he added.
Speaking after the Warriors' win, Draymond Green said: "It's good to win the first one, and we did what we supposed to and took care of it".
"I think that just thinking about the next game, things that we can correct going forward", he said. "I pride myself on not turning the ball over and I did it too much".
The Cavaliers shot 35 percent from the floor and 36 percent from long-distance; the Warriors, 43 and 36 percent, respectively.
