Not even a flagrant foul could slow down Oubre vs. T-Wolves

Warriors' Kelly Oubre Jr.

Warriors wing Kelly Oubre Jr. was no worse for wear after being on the receiving end of a Flagrant 2 foul from Minnesota Timberwolves big man Ed Davis.

Davis was ejected and will be fined a minimum of $2,000 after hitting Oubre as he rose for a breakaway dunk in the second quarter at Chase Center.

Oubre was one of the Warriors' best players in the first half, and he remained energized after hitting the ground hard on Davis' flagrant foul. Later in the quarter, he got in some push-ups after Jake Layman shoved him on a screen.

Steph Curry scored just two points in the first half, and Oubre picked up the slack in the second quarter. He scored 16 points (on 5-of-5 shooting), eclipsing his total from 12 of 17 games he has played this season. Oubre also dished out four assists, grabbed three rebounds, picked up two steals and blocked a shot in the first half.

With more games like this, Oubre's name might not be in the rumor mill for much longer.
