Kelly Oubre scored 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting (4-of-4 FT) Wednesday, to go with nine rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, two steals, one block and four turnovers in just 24 minutes in a win over the Timberwolves.
Oubre didn't get off to a great start in this one, collecting two fouls and two turnovers in his first minute of play, but he came back in and proceeded to drop in 16 points without missing through the second quarter of action — which accounted for the most points he's scored in any quarter throughout his career thus far. Oubre's name recently came up in some trade rumors, but Steve Kerr tamped that down after the game, saying, "It was unfortunate. A team called us and asked about Kelly. Didn't even make an offer. Just asked about Kelly." Oubre respected the fact that Kerr reached out to him, and this is the exact performance you'd want to see from him, as he played a key role in the win. It doesn't sound like anything is brewing on the trade front, for now, and if Oubre keeps playing like this it'll be tough for the Dubs to deal him. 2:01 am (EST)
