Ricky Rubio picked up just two points on Tuesday and shot 1-of-8 from the field but was able to collect six rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 32 minutes.
Well, at least the assists were there. Rubio can’t get it together this year and has been bench-worthy for some time now, though he’s just too talented and has too much playing time to drop. It’s been a lack of dimes that’s held him back, and his dip in playing time has led to dips in all his counting stats. Rubio may be able to recoup some of his poor season with a strong finish, and hopefully this solid night in the assist department will get him moving in the right direction.
