It's true. Ricky Rubio did score 30 points in Utah's overtime win over Portland Wednesday night. 

It's also true that he's scored 20+ points in three straight games and is averaging 17.8 points though eight games this season. 

What's also true are the 353 previous games he played to the tune of 10.3 points a game. 

Here's a list of every 30-point game of Rubio's career. 

  1. Mar. 30, 2017: 33 points against the Lakers.
  2. Nov. 1, 2017: 30 points against the Trail Blazers.

Still, props to Rubio for getting a huge new tattoo, growing a dangerous looking man beard, and playing like a complete point guard in the early stages of the season.
