Given Rihanna's prevalence at NBA playoffs games of late, ESPN's Jeff Van Gundy jokingly speculated that she might be stalking him on Thursday night's Game 6 telecast of the Oklahoma City Thunder-Los Angeles Clippers series.

Sideline reporter Lisa Salters actually asked the pop singer about the possibility, but she confessed to not being entirely sure who Van Gundy was. Salters quipped that he needed to introduce himself.

Van Gundy responded that Salters had "deflated [his] whole night."

Better luck next time, JVG.
