Too late: Oubre dunks after first-half buzzer vs. Mavericks

Kelly Oubre dunks

Fresh off a career-high 40-point performance Thursday against the Dallas Mavericks, Kelly Oubre Jr. reverted back to his struggling ways in the first half Saturday night.

Facing the same Mavericks team, Oubre Jr. went 3-of-9 from the field in 19 first-half minutes, finishing with eight points before halftime.

Oubre Jr.'s tough first half was capped off when he cost the Warriors a chance at two points.

After Luka Doncic made a fadeaway shot in the lane to give the Mavericks a 72-64 lead with 1.2 seconds remaining, the Warriors inbounded the ball to Oubre Jr., who was streaking down the court.

Instead of putting up a quick shot before the buzzer sounded, Oubre Jr. decided to try to dunk the ball.

He didn't have nearly enough time and the dunk came after the buzzer.

The good news for the Warriors and Oubre Jr. is that he came out of the locker room on fire hitting two 3-pointers in the first four minutes of the third quarter.
