Following a stinker in his Dubs debut against the Brooklyn Nets in the season opener, Oubre recorded another unflattering feat in Golden State's humiliating 138-99 defeat versus the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.
Per ESPN Stats & Info, the 25-year-old swingman became the first player in league history to miss all 11 of his 3-point attempts in his first two games with a new team.

Kelly Oubre Jr. played 20 minutes against the Bucks but only produced a meager three-point outing, along with five boards, one assist and one steal. He missed nine of his 10 attempts from the field and went 0-for-5 from past the arc. The 6-foot-7 winger didn't do much better in his first game, where he contributed six points and went 0-of-6 from downtown for the Warriors. All in all, Oubre's made field goals so far have only come from dunks.
That is certainly way beyond the Warriors' expectations when they shelled out two first-round picks to the Oklahoma City Thunder for his services.
Oubre carried a lot of hype entering his first season in The Bay following a career-year with the Phoenix Suns in 2019-20. The former Kansas Jayhawk notched 18.7 points in 55 games while upping his 3-point efficiency to 35.2 percent. The Warriors knew that it would be hard to replace the production that injured superstar Klay Thompson brought, but they were hoping that Oubre and Andrew Wiggins could help lessen that blow. Both wingers have struggled in Golden State's first two games so far.
The Warriors will have a few days to rest before they take on the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday. Hopefully, Oubre can put his act together by then and put up a much better performance.
