Rubio, LaVine And The Wolves' Newfound Space

Through the first month of the season, Ricky Rubio led the Timberwolves to a 7-4 record. When he missed six games during November, the T-Wolves struggled with a 1-5 record. Much of these struggles have to do with Rubio's replacement, the uber-athletic wing (yes, wing) Zach LaVine.
