Wolves’ Ricky Rubio Impresses in Return
Nine months after tearing two ligaments in his left knee, after surgery to repair them, after countless rehab sessions, (Ricky) Rubio returned.
And it might be no exaggeration to say that the energy that drove this victory came from Rubio.
In seven first-half minutes he had four points, four assists and a steal, entering with the lethargic Wolves down 10 points, returning to the bench with the Wolves within two — a roll that continued even with Rubio on the bench.
But this was Rubio’s night. He was the man the fans were there to see. It was his energy that kick-started the Wolves. It was his amazing night that gave promise of significant promise going forward.
