By ANDREI GRESKA FOXSportsWisconsin.com MILWAUKEE -- Ricky Rubio is a magician with the ball in his hands. That is already known. A bit more covert has been his transition from a pass first, second and third point-guard to a viable scoring threat. Just ask the Milwaukee Bucks. Rubio caught fire from beyond the arc in the first half of Minnesota's 107-98 victory Tuesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, torching the Bucks for five 3-pointers on five attempts in the first half.

Ridnour forced to play out of position

MINNEAPOLIS Saturday night, Ricky Rubio decided to score. And score, and score. To the tune of 23 points, a career high. Ricky Rubio decided to score, and so Luke Ridnour adjusted, facilitating rather than scoring himself and picking up the slack where it was left. So he continued to adjust, just as he's been doing since Dec. 15, the day the Spanish point guard made his heralded...
