You can see Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio’s European influence in this play. Jarrett Jack is squaring him up as he approaches the arc and Rubio gets a little unconventional. Rubio passes the ball through his legs to forward Kevin Love who is in the post.
In soccer thats called a nutmeg. It looked like Love wanted the ball up high at first but Rubio either hesitated or decided it was too risky. The creativity from Rubio is fun to watch though. Love takes a dribble and puts it in off the glass for the easy bucket.
