Oubre describes the ‘art' of his amazing tip-dunk ability


Kelly Oubre had another terrific game Wednesday night in the Warriors' 121-99 win over the San Antonio Spurs.

He registered 16 points, nine rebounds, two steals and one block in just under 31 minutes.

And early in the fourth quarter, Oubre did this:

Is there an art form to the tip dunk? Is it as easy as it looks?

"I don't know. It's a timing thing of course. But it's also a will and a way -- just like there is with everything," he told the media after the victory. "So yeah, I believe so. Everything is art depending on how you look at it.

"I just want it. I want it more than anybody else. I'm gonna go to whatever heights and go get it."

Oubre has had several incredible putback dunks this season, including a monster one in the season opener vs. the Brooklyn Nets.

"Freak athlete but he's got a great eye for the timing of it," Steph Curry explained Wednesday night. "You can jump that high and you're looking for those opportunities, then good things happen.

"He makes it look really good though. I will say that. He makes it look really good."
