Ricky Rubio was a man on a mission in Wednesday night's Wolves win over the Nets. Minnesota scored the final nine points of the game, earning a 98-91 win. Rubio, who finished just two rebounds shy of a triple double, was a bit flummoxed when he heard Nikola Pekovic, who came up big in the fourth quarter, say the Wolves are going to forget the win and start thinking about Friday's game in Orlando.

Rubio's reaction is priceless.

Rubio, who signed a four-year, $56 million contract extension with the Wolves last week, is off to a fantastic start this season. Check out his game log at and you'll see how balanced he's been.

  • Grizzlies: 12 points, 6 rebounds 7 assists, 1 steal
  • Pistons: 11 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal
  • Bulls: 6 points, 4 rebounds, 17 assists, 2 steals
  • Nets: 14 points, 8 rebounds, 12 assists, 2 steals

The 23-year-old is averaging a healthy 10.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 11 assists per game.

The Star Tribune captured a screen grab of Rubio's reaction. Enjoy it... over and over and over again.
