Ricky Rubio recorded his first career triple-double (21 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists) in a 107-83 win over the Spurs Tuesday at Target Center. When Stephen Jackson was asked about Rubio’s triple-double postgame, the guard took a subtle dig at both the second-year point guard and the injury-plagued Timberwolves.

I’m not into guys averaging 20 and 30 on sorry teams. He’s got some upside, I’ll say that. But it’s all about winning to me, it’s not what you do on your personal stuff.”
