Ricky Rubio was abhorrent in Wednesday’s blowout loss, playing 25 minutes and shooting 2-of-8 to post a woeful five points, one assist, two steals, one 3-pointer and five turnovers.
It just hasn’t been happening for Rubio this year, whose assists have nearly been halved from last year’s numbers and down by more than three dimes from his previous career-low. The three cash counters did a little bit of good tonight but it’s just not going to be enough. While his assist numbers should start to rebound in the coming weeks, he’s just a late-round guy so far. On a total value basis he’s still in the top-90 but falls to top-130 levels on a per game basis. His buy low appeal is dwindling by the day.
