"The Timberwolves are fine offensively without Rubio. In fact, they've scored two more points per 100 possessions with Rubio off the floor. Defensively they've allowed seven more points per 100 possessions without him and are allowing 11 more points per game. "

Memo to Wolves bigs, watch how Brad Miller gets easy shots for your wings.Love and Pek-you two can't do it all by yourself."
I was originally going to protest this, but then gave it a second thought. I definitely subscribe to the theory that moving the ball is as much an art as a science. Meaning there's a difference between passing to a guy who's open, and passing to a guy who's in a position to score. Love, Pekovic, Ridnour...they're scientists. Miller is an artist, like KG is, like Chris Webber was. I won't debate that our wings aren't particularly good, but....well, Brad Miller came in and got 6 assists in just 22 minutes. Love hasn't had a 6 assist game all year. Pekovic hasn't had a 6 assist game ever.
