Rubio cleared to play back-to-back games

MINNEAPOLIS Ricky Rubio answered the question like there'd never been a doubt. Yes, he said. Yes, he'll be playing in Oklahoma City Wednesday night, tomorrow night, really, when he said it.

Ricky Rubio proved last night why he's known as the most creative passer in the NBA.  Check out the video below of Rubio tossing a pass between his legs through two defenders to Lou Amundson.  Sadly Lou couldn't convert the basket to top it all off, but you can't blame Rubio for his crappy teammate.

Wolves 3-point shooting worst in league

MINNEAPOLIS This is bad. Epically bad, in fact. Ugly bad. Head-shakingly bad. Tied for 21th-worst all-time bad. If you haven't guessed it yet, I'm referring to the Timberwolves' 3-point shooting this season.
