Rubio compiled 16 points (6-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal over 25 minutes in Thursday's 112-100 loss to the Trail Blazers. Despite playing his fewest amount of minutes since Feb. 8, Rubio turned in his 11th double-digit scoring effort in 12 March games, posting his sixth contest with better than 50 percent shooting over that span. The 26-year-old Spaniard is enjoying his best offensive month of the season, with his 16.3 points and 46.9 percent success rate from the field both serving as high-water marks.
Rubio contributed 19 points (5-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 15 assists, three rebounds, three steals and one block across 43 minutes in a 130-119 overtime loss to the Lakers on Friday. After seeing a nine-game streak of double-digit scoring come to an end with a nine-point effort in Tuesday's loss to the Spurs, Rubio got back on track offensively thanks in large part to his flawless showing from the free-throw line. With Rubio emerging as a consistent source of scoring while still offering his usual gaudy assist totals, he's raised his ceiling in both DFS and season-long formats, and that isn't expected to change over the final couple weeks of the season even with the Timberwolves fading from the playoff conversation.
Rubio scored 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt) while adding 14 assists, three rebounds and a steal in 35 minutes during Sunday's 123-109 loss to the Pelicans. After reeling off four straight games with 20 or more points, Rubio put up a more Rubio-like line Sunday and saw his offense take a back seat to his distribution. He's now got five double-doubles in his last eight games and a career-high 18 on the season, but perhaps more impressively given his track record, he's scored in double digits in all nine games so far in March.
Rubio finished with 20 points (8-14 FG, 4-4 FT) while adding six assists, two steals and a blocked shot over 33 minutes in Friday's 123-105 loss against the Heat. Rubio has posted 20 or more points in a career-high four straight games, averaging 21.8 points, 10.0 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game over the impressive span. Over the years he has been a fantasy stud for his high number of assists and steals, but he hasn't been a prolific scorer over the years until now.
Rubio tallied 22 points (8-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 19 assists, five rebounds and three assists across 39 minutes in Monday's 119-104 victory over the Wizards. Rubio's season-high assist total led the Timberwolves to a large victory over a playoff team. He double-doubled before the first half even ended as Rubio hasn't had a hard time achieving huge numbers since Zach LaVine was ruled out for the season. Look for the recent hot streak to continue as Rubio's efficiency has been a solid addition to his strong assist totals.
