Ricky Rubio scored 12 points and handed out seven dimes while shooting 5-of-7 from the field on Saturday.
Don’t look now, but Rubio has missed just four field goals total in his last three games combined. Before you get too excited, it should be noted that the veteran point guard has only attempted 13 shots in that span, but it certainly is a nice change of pace to begin the new year. Rubio’s 7.1 assists and 1.7 steals per game are helpful, but the rest of the numbers are so dreadful that his beauty is really dependent of the eye of the beholder. Even if a trade happens, there is little reason to think a big surge is coming for the veteran point guard at this stage of his career.
