Sweet Point Guard Play

In the Minnesota Timberwolves OT victory in Dallas on Wednesday night we witnessed ‘peak Rubio’.  The young point guard went for 22-15-10 and 4 steals on 8-of-12 shooting.

In doing so Ricky Rubio became the first NBA player in five years to reach 20 points, 15 assists, 10 rebounds and 4 steals in a single-game.  The previous two such games were by former Hornet Chris Paul.

Over the last three decades this feat has been accomplished only eleven times.  Look at young Jeff Hornacek!!!
