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

Feb 26, 2014, 12:05 AM EDT

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.

    I’m pulling for Rubio. His highlights are awesome. Unfortunately we don’t get many of them. He’s still a pup though, he’s got time to put it together.

      A pup? He’s been playing pro ball for 9 years. That’s retirement age for dogs and Wolves.

    He’s 23. He’s not even in his prime. There’s still time!

    If the day comes where he gets a better offensive game, this guy would be too nice.

    Criticising Rubio for shooting is like Criticising Durant for not putting up 10 assists a night. That’s not who he is nor is his role. Minnesota is an offense heavy team full of scorers and as long as Kevin Love is there, plus the open looks that their system tends to get their wing players, Rubio’s shooting percentage will never matter.
