Kelly Oubr Jr. was feeling himself on Monday night, as the Golden State Warriors took on the Sacramento Kings on the second night of a back-to-back set. So much so, that the 25-year-old decided to blow a kiss towards the Kings bench after draining his third triple of the evening.

Oubre, who joined the Warriors in the offseason via a trade deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder, hasn’t exactly had a strong start to his career with the Dubs. He came into Monday’s contest against the Kings averaging just 9.7 points (on 32.0 percent shooting) and 6.2 rebounds, while also going 2-of-30 from rainbow territory for a horrendous 6.7-percent shooting rate from distance.
The Kings bench was likely talking smack to Oubre all night long, and for his part, the 6-foot-7 small forward took the opportunity to clap back the moment he drained another trey right in front of the bench.
Oubre had his best outing as a Warrior on Monday, finishing with 18 points on 6-of-13 shooting, to go along with four triples, three rebounds, two assists, a steal, two blocks, and zero turnovers in 26 minutes of play. This comes off his 17-point outing against the Blazers on Sunday.
The Warriors ended up blowing out Sacramento, 137-106, which marks their fourth win in their past five games. Both Oubre and the rest of the Dubs are clearly trending in the right direction right now.
