NBA Playoffs 2014: Rihanna takes in Nets-Raptors, dances (GIF)

The Toronto Raptors used an 18-4 run in just over four minutes to cut a 93-78 Brooklyn Nets’ lead to one before the Raptors missed a couple of key free throws and the Nets hit two on the other end to put the game away.

After winning game 1 94-87 and losing game 2 100-95, the Nets held serve on the home court and kept home court advantage in the series after stealing it in game 1.

During the first two games of the series, the Raptors’ biggest celebrity fan was on display (well, besides Mayor Rob Ford, of course).

Rapper Drake often takes in NBA games and showed his support in Tuesday night’s game 2 (He, of course, was caught using a lint roller on his pants, which has apparently has become a new celebration for Raptors’ fans).

Now that Jay-Z is no longer the court-side celebrity for the Nets (and Sir Paul McCartney must have been busy), the Nets used another one of the most popular singers in the world to counter.

Rihanna was in attendance was caught dancing on camera.
