Ricky Rubio behind the back pass to Kevin Love

Ricky Rubio is ridiculous

If you haven't watched the Timberwolves play at all this year, you're really missing out. Kevin Love is the best power forward in the NBA, Slam Dunk Contest participant Derrick Williams is ridiculously exciting to watch, and point guard Ricky Rubio has some of the sweetest moves we've seen in a long time. Even when they make mistakes, it somehow turns into an amazing play.

Here's on example. Kevin Love loses the basketball, and it somehow ends up in Rubio's hands, and he sends a no-look behind the back pass back to Love for the basket. This is sick.





This isn't the first time the Wolves have salvaged a broken play and turned it into a highlight reel. They did it last week, too.

Love, Rubio, and the recent Pekovic emergence (and hilarious video) - it's an awesome core they have.

They can stop with the Pau Gasol trade stuff now, though.

As far as the pass itself, I've probably seen about 95% of Rubio's assists this year, that one was the best.
