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