The admiration taht Kelly Oubre has for Russell Westbrook, who is on the verge of breaking the NBA record for triple-doubles in a season, comes from a distance. The second-year player doesn’t appear to have any close personal ties to the Oklahoma City star, but he knows effort when he sees it and used it to best explain his own play in Tuesday’s 118-111 win over the Charlotte Hornets. “Russell Westbook,” Oubre told CSNmidatlantic.com’s Chris Miller after the game. “Straight up.”
The playing time has all of a sudden dried up entirely for the 2015 first round pick out of Kansas. “I never really thought I did [hit a wall], but looking back at it now, I was a little fatigued, man. Mentally and physically,” Oubre said. “All year I’ve been pretty much trying to find my way. I’ve had ups and downs… Now I’ve gotten a little rest and the second half of the season is up, there is more focus on the playoff push, obviously. I’m just trying to end my sophomore season off with a bang.”
As for what Oubre needs to get back into the mix, it all comes back to a common theme for him: focus and discipline. “More discipline, man. I have all the talent. I have all the skills,” Oubre said. “I work on it every day. I just gotta continue to remain disciplined and try to follow the right reps and do things the right way every time. Just continue to get better. I’ve been watching a lot of film, staying in the gym and trying to work on my craft.”
