Watch out Drake. Looks like singer Rihanna is out to steal your NBA playoff thunder with her star show of Brooklyn support.

But now singer Rihanna has taken her maybe boyfriend’s sideline display and raised it with her very public show of Nets support at the Barclays Center on Friday night. 

Here’s Brooklyn’s tweet: 

And the Raptors’ response: 

Just add this to the ever-growing list of odds and ends associated with this already-heated Toronto-Brooklyn rivalry. The Nets now lead the series 2-1 after Friday’s 102-98 win

H/t FTW.
