VIDEO: Ricky Rubio drops the spinning assist to Nikola Pekovic

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Boston Celtics played a preseason game in Montreal in the hopes of impressing some Canadian fans.

If you want to bring a little flair and excitement with you to cities that don't have NBA basketball, you probably want to make sure Ricky Rubio is involved. He ran a pick-and-pop with Kevin Love, drove the baseline, and dropped a look-away bounce pass into Nikola Pekovic as he spun away from the defender. It was a basic pass by Rubio for an assist, but it was a crowd-pleaser.

Even Dave Cowens liked it!
