Should ‘Wolves Fans Worry About Rubio?
But if you’re a Timberwolves fan, there is more cloud than silver lining in Spain’s play. That’s because point guard Ricky Rubio, who announced this summer — to great fanfare — that he would be joining the Timberwolves when the NBA resumes play, has continued a disturbing pattern of disappointing box-score lines that has marked the past year of his career.
Against Britain, Rubio was 2-for-5 from the field with four points and four assists. He was 0-for-2 from the 3-point line and has now missed all seven perimeter shots he has taken in the tournament. He is averaging 3.0 points and 2.0 assists so far, and is shooting just 28.6 percent from the field.
