Timberwolves’ Ricky Rubio nutmegs Blazers’ Nick Batum (GIF)


Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio has been an exciting player in his brief career and he showed why against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night. It looks like Rubio gets a steal and he is leading the fast break.

The Blazers’ Nick Batum is standing in his way ready to play defense squaring up and Rubio pulls out a soccer move. He delivers a bounce pass between the legs.

He executes it perfectly, it was a great move. The Timberwolves have a nine point lead at the end of the first quarter as well. Which is also impressive because Minnesota is a sub-.500 team while the Trail Blazers are the Western Conference’s top team.
