Ricky Rubio took a nice step forward on Thursday night, posting 11 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 38 minutes as the Jazz bested the Spurs.
It wasn’t all roses here, as Rubio committed six turnovers and shot 2-of-7, but it’s definitely a notable line in a very forgettable season for the Spaniard. While his assists still aren’t where they should be everything else seems to be rounding into form. Rubio went supernova in the second half of last season so a huge rebound wouldn’t be unprecedented, but it’s going to take a gargantuan effort for him to even get back to his ADP. We’ll revisit the conversation if he can string a few more of these together.
