"I ain't got nothin' to say," Durant said, trophy in hand. "Love you, girl, but I gots to do it. GOTS to do it, you understand me?"

Rihanna also weighed in on the feud, re-posting a parody video made by a fan that featured Rihanna as Simba, Durant as Scar and Cavs star Lebron James as Mufasa from Disney's The Lion King.

"#LongLiveTheKing #KingisStillKingBitch (whispers congrats to KD, cause....ROCNation)," she captioned it. "BUT: me and @mdollas11 beefing all summer!!"

In case you missed it, RiRi was courtside for Game 1 of the finals at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, cheering on the Cavaliers and literally bowing down to Lebron James' greatness.

She fueled the fire even more when she seemingly yelled "Brick" while Durant was at the free throw line, which resulted in a major showdown between the two for the rest of the game. Fans on Twitter quickly caught wind of the epic feud and couldn't help themselves from talking about it, keeping the social conversation going hours after the final buzzer went off.

Despite the singer's antics, the Warriors still came out on top, defeating the Cavs 113 to 91. When asked about the interaction in his post-game interview, Durant played coy while his teammate, Stephen Curry, teased him.

"Don't get in that trap," Curry joked.

"I'm cool," Durant added. "Have fun with that."
