Ricky Rubio gets one-armed, backwards circus shot to fall

5 Comments

Ricky Rubio’s shooting this season is not exactly on the trajectory the Timberwolves were hoping for — hitting 36.3 percent overall, taking 42 percent of his shots at the rim (inside the restricted area) but hitting just 44.6 percent of those. David Kahn was saving the magical fifth year extension for this guy?

But he can still make some plays.

And he can make some shots in the restricted area, like this circus one as he was fouled.

Rubio had just 7 points on 8 shots on the night, but he did have 11 assists as Minnesota came from behind in the fourth quarter to beat the Suns 110-101.
