The Minnesota Timberwolves have been hit by the injury bug awfully hard this season. Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love, the team’s two lead players, have both missed significant time, with Love currently sidelined and Rubio still trying to find his rhythm.
It’s clear the Rubio isn’t at the top of his game right now, and understandably so, coming off of a major knee injury. And if you need proof, watch the below play, where Rubio botched a wide open layup. Hey, at least he got some backboard! Credit to Hardwood Paroxysm for the GIF.
How does that happen?
Rubio was completely wide open, and didn’t even come close. It’s not even like the ball rattled around the rim, or he stumbled, or anything like that.
Hey, for entertainment purposes, it’s great though.
