Ricky Rubio took some baby steps on Wednesday night, picking up 14 points, six rebounds and four assists in 27 minutes.
Rubio didn’t add any cash counters but is hopefully on the way to a peak after settling in an ugly valley so far this season. He’s outside the top-120 on the year but shouldn’t have too much trouble getting into the top-90 on the year. Rubio hasn’t been great but his career numbers have earned him enough leash to take a chance for the rest of the year, especially if the acquisition cost isn’t all that high.
