Minnesota Timberwolves have been one of the most entertaining NBA teams to watch this season, and their point guard Ricky Rubio is a big reason why. Rubio is posting career highs in points, assists and field goal percentage, and his fantastic performances are helping the Timberwolves win games. Last night, the 26-year old guard had a career game against the Los Angeles Lakers, scoring career-high 33 points and recording 10 assists.

The Timberwolves beat the Lakers, winning their 30th game of the season. Unfortunately, it is too late for them to make a playoff push now, but they are showing how amazing they are and what great things they are capable of doing.

Big night for Rubio

Ricky Rubio finished the Lakers game with 33 points, 10 assists, 5 rebounds and 2 steals. He shot efficiently from the field, converting 12 of his 20 shot attempts and was red-hot from the long range as he made 80 percent of his threes. He played well from start to finish, leading the Timberwolves to their second straight victory.

Coincidentally, Rubio's previous career-high in scoring was also against the Lakers in October 2015. In that game, the young playmaker scored 28 points on 10-of-17 shooting and dished out 14 assists, as the Timberwolves left Los Angeles with a big victory to start the season.

Ricky Rubio has done a great job this season

Rubio has been very valuable for the Timberwolves this season and he's been very good since Zach LaVine was ruled out for the season.

The young Spaniard took his game to a whole never level as he had the ball in his hands more often, which allowed him to create more scoring opportunities for his teammates and himself. Right now, Rubio ranks fifth in the NBA in assists per game with 9.0, and he is having the best season of his career.

Even though Ricky Rubio was involved in numerous trade rumors this season, it is very likely that the Minnesota Timberwolves will keep him as a long-term player. He is one of the best playmakers in the entire NBA and he fits very well in the current roster. The point guard has three years left on his contracts and it would be a smart move for the Timberwolves to keep him in Minnesota and see how far his playmaking can take them.
