Ricky Rubio was held to two points (1-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), but finished with nine assists, four rebounds, and a steal over 34 minutes in Tuesday's 124-117 overtime upset of the Warriors.
The two points gave Rubio his lowest scoring night since March 8, and extended his streak of single-digit points to four games. As has been the case throughout his career, Rubio's broken jump shot remains the main source of his recent demise, as he's hit only 7-of-30 attempts (23.3%) from the field during that stretch. In spite of those struggles, Rubio has managed to become more of a three-point threat of late, as Tuesday marked the first time in the last 13 games that he failed to knock down a single shot from downtown.
Ricky Rubio compiled 17 points (6-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 assists, seven rebounds, and three steals in 34 minutes during the Minnesota Timberwolves ' 121-116 victory against the Suns on Monday.
Rubio was three rebounds away from a triple-double, but he also committed six turnovers. He has made nine threes in the last five games, upping his total on the season to 56 made triples. Meanwhile, this was his seventh double-double in March and his 13th of 2015-16. Rubio is closing the season on a high note, showing some serious improvement in the shooting department.
Ricky Rubio collected 23 points (9-12 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six assists, five rebounds, four steals and a block over 31 minutes in Saturday's 93-84 loss to the Jazz.
The fifth-year pro, notorius for his shooting inefficiency, has shown marked improvement from the field recently. He came in to Saturday's contest already shooting 42 percent overall in March, his best figure in that category in a full month this season. Saturday's 75 percent success rate from the field equaled his second best of the season, and marked his fifth game during March where he's shot 50 percent or better. If Rubio can maintain his offensive improvement over the final stretch of the season, his already solid fantasy value will go up several notches.
Ricky Rubio recorded 20 points (5-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-7 FT), 11 assists, four rebounds, four steals, and one block across 33 minutes during the Minnesota Timberwolves ' 109-104 loss to the Warriors on Monday.
Rubio matched his season-high with three three-pointers on Monday, and all three of these performances have happened in February and March. He has made 50 three-pointers on the season, which is five more than his previous high for a campaign, and Rubio is actually averaging 1.5 threes through 10 March matchups. It has been his best overall month as well, as he is averaging 13.1 points (44.6 FG, 39.5 3Pt, 93.3 FT), nine assists to 3.2 turnovers, 4.4 rebounds, 1.9 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 32 minutes during March.
Ricky Rubio contributed 14 points (6-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six assists, three rebounds and a block over 32 minutes in Friday's 116-111 loss to the Rockets.
The 25-year-old Spaniard continued his recent strong stretch of play, posting his fourth straight double-digit scoring outing, and fifth in the last six games. Rubio did see his streak of three consecutive double-doubles come to an end, but encouragingly shot 50 percent or better for the second straight game. A notoriously mediocre shooter, Rubio has nevertheless managed to demonstrate improvement in his field-goal percentages in each successive month of the campaign, and is currently posting a season-best 43 percent figure over nine March games.
