Before Kelly Oubre Jr. landed in the Bay Area, he spent his first three seasons in the association with the Washington Wizards. During the opening three-years of his NBA career, Oubre Jr. was teammates with two-time All-Star scorer Bradley Beal.

On Thursday night, Beal kept an eye on Oubre Jr.’s performance for the Golden State Warriors. The former Wizard tallied a career-high 40 points on 14-of-21 shooting from the field in 36 minutes against the Dallas Mavericks. Oubre Jr. produced his best Splash Brother impression, drilling seven 3-pointers on 10 attempts from beyond the arc.

Along with his new career-best in scoring, the 25-year-old added eight boards, two assists, a steal and a block in Golden State’s blowout 147-116 win over the Mavs.

Following Oubre’s career night in Dallas, Beal chimed in on Twitter with a shoutout to his former teammate.

Via @RealDealBeal23 on Twitter:

When it comes to high-scoring performances, Beal knows what he’s talking about. Through 17 games on the season, the 27-year-old has scored 37 or more points in six contests this season, including a 60 point eruption against the Philadelphia 76ers. Beal is averaging 34.8 points on 48.5% shooting from the field during the early 2020-21 season.
