There were several times during last night's NBA Finals opener when ABC's cameras showed Pat Riley and Alonzo Mourning in the crowd. The Heat executive and all-time great stood out like sore thumbs in the Thunder crowd, donning black suits while the rest of the Oklahoma City faithful wore blue t-shirts.

The best shots of Riley and Mourning came in the second half, when the Thunder surged to the lead. The duo looked like they had seen a ghost at times, sporting miserable scowls as the surrounding fans went wild.

Of course, the terrific juxtaposition of Riley and Mourning's plight with OKC's euphoria made for the perfect GIF. And, courtesy of @CorkGaines via @SBNationGIF, here's the best of the Mourning morning:
