Court Grip Difference Maker Of The Week: Cover Up Your 5-Hole Around Ricky Rubio

Ricky Rubio

Last night, Ricky Rubio set a career-high with 16 assists during Minnesota’s 124-95 blowout of the Cavs. The tussled hair of the Spaniard was bouncing all over the place as he easily found open teammates, even if it meant nutmegging a defender.

Ricky megged Michael Carter-Williams earlier this year, and last night it was Jarrett Jack‘s turn:

But Ricky doesn't just meg opponents to get an assist, he'll also gladly pass it between his own legs to find a teammate, like he did in the 2012 Rookie-Sophomore game.

There’s really no way to defend against such wizardry. Defenders just have to be aware there’s an obvious opening between their legs when they take a defensive stance, and Ricky might just take advantage.

What do you think?
