Suns’ Kelly Oubre Jr. blows kisses to Blazers fans after hitting clutch triple

Kelly Oubre Jr., Suns, Blazers

Phoenix Suns forward Kelly Oubre Jr. is certainly not earning himself some fans in Oregon after his shenanigans against the Portland Trail Blazers at the Moda Center on Monday.

The 6’8″ lanky swingman first got the ire of the crowd when he shoved Blazers’ superstar Damian Lillard to the ground right before halftime. After torching the home team from the outside for most of the game, Kelly Oubre delivered the cold-blooded dagger three with 43 seconds left in regulation.

With Phoenix clinging to just a three-point advantage, Kelly Oubre followed coach Monty Williams’ designed play and found himself wide open at the right wing. He caught a nice feed from Ricky Rubio and launched the booming triple, as Blazers’ center Hassan Whiteside tried to contest.

Kelly Oubre first taunted Whiteside who tripped on the play, then proceeded to blow some kisses to the annoyed fans watching live. The Suns went on to claim an impressive 122-116 victory and sent Portland to their fourth consecutive defeat.

Kelly Oubre certainly walked the talk, putting up 29 points built on seven made three-pointers, to go along with five rebounds in 40 minutes.
