Ricky Rubio missed all five of his shots from the field in a 95-89 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday. He hit his lone free throw, dished out six assists, and got two steals.
Considering how well Rubio has been playing over his last several games, this is a bit of a letdown. That said, this could just be minor speedbump as he continues on his upward trend. The Spaniard logged 27 minutes in this one and still looks like he’s going to command the lion’s share of the minutes at point guard. That is, until the Wolves decide to transition towards their other promising assets at that position. His value will remain volatile until these trade rumors settle down.
