Ricky Rubio's season has been pretty terrible up until Saturday night. In the T-Wolves' loss to Charlotte, Rubio scored 14 points (4-9 FG, 5-6 FT), with a 3-pointer, a rebound, eight assists and five steals. This was easily his best night of the season. He's shooting just 23.1 percent from the field, making him virtually unstartable. More games like this will change that recommendation. Luke Ridnour also had a nice game: 22 points (9-14 FG, 1-1 FT), three 3-pointers, seven rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a block. He's 48 percent owned in Yahoo. He's having a solid January: 13.4 points, 3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1 steal, .2 blocks and .85 3-pointers. Photo via Rubio's Facebook.

Faltering Timberwolves no match for Wizards

WASHINGTON, D.C.

What's the point of taking shots at Love?

WASHINGTON, D.C. I'm going to begin this with a few caveats because without caveats this is too broad, too far-reaching, too much the stuff of indiscriminate finger-pointing. So, to clarify, this is not directed at everyone who's ever called himself a Timberwolves fan. It's not lobbed at a state or a city, ignoring the sane and making the unreasonable the only ones...
