Ricky Rubio is shooting bricks overseasPosted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports:
The numbers don’t lie—Ricky Rubio is struggling with his shot.
The Spaniard is shooting just 20 percent from beyond the 3-point line in the Euroleague this season, a stat that has concerned fans of the Minnesota Timberwolves, the team that used a first-round draft pick in 2009 to claim him.
As for Rubio himself, he’s not sweating it.
“Sometimes it goes in, sometimes it doesn’t,” Rubio told The Associated Press after a recent 80-56 win over Roma Lottomatica. “I’m not worried. You have to keep shooting and believing in yourself.”
Rubio is averaging only about six points per game, but he is also doing what he does best—finding passing angles few others see and creating offense.
