VIDEO: Warriors’ Kelly Oubre Jr. blows a kiss to Kings bench after hitting third triple
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.
