Ricky Rubio: a secret genius?

Not only has Ricky Rubio made the Timberwolves a potential playoff team, but he might also be a genius. The Timberwolves led by three with 10 seconds left last night, and the Nets had the ball with a chance to tie. Deron Williams quickly dribbled up court, did a nice crossover to beat his man, and drew the big man in the lane. He had Anthony Morrow wide open in the corner for a three (he had 42 points and was 8 of 11 from three for the game) but botched the pass. Rubio ended up with the ball. Rather than get fouled, he chucked the ball high and far down the court; the clock ran out as the ball bounced harmless under the other hoop. The Wolves would have almost surely won if Rubio held the ball, but he removed any doubt. Nice work, Rubio.
