Ricky Rubio shot 4-of-13 from the field for 12 points with seven boards, nine assists and three steals in 32 minutes against the Kings.
When the Wolves lose, Rubio having a tough shooting night tends to be a contributing factor. In losses, he shoots just 34 percent from the field compared to 44 percent in wins. Rubio has been terrific in steals and the dimes are coming in in bunches, so he's a must-start player armed with a strong schedule the rest of the way. He said his groin issue wasn't a concern tonight's game serves as supporting evidence.
