Ricky Rubio was a one-man show against San Antonio on Tuesday night, dominating the Spurs en route to his first career triple-double.
He finished with a season-high 21 points, a career-high 13 rebounds, and 12 assists.
This was easily the best game of Rubio's career, but given the way he has played over the past five weeks, we shouldn't be all that surprised by Tuesday's outburst. Since Feb. 4, Rubio has averaged 13.4 points, 9.4 assists, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.9 (!) steals in 35 minutes per game. The only hole in his game remains his shot, as Rubio is shooting just 35.5 percent in 77 career games since joining the NBA.
The scary thing is that we aren't even close to seeing Rubio's ceiling yet. At just 22, Rubio is a few years away from entering his prime. He'll never be an elite shooter, but Rubio will likely work out his kinks and become at least somewhat respectable with his stoke. Once that happens, we'll be looking at a fantasy monster.
