Ricky Rubio played one of his better games this season in last night's 106-104 loss to the Knicks, but his inability to produce at the offensive end has never been clearer than it was when Brandon Jennings refused to guard him at the 3-point line.

Instead, Jennings backed up beneath the free-throw line – a good 10-feet from Rubio – and put his arms out as if he was daring Rubio to shoot. Rubio did not take the shot.

Rubio is shooting a career-low 25 percent from three this season. It's one of many career worst per-game averages for the 26 year old.

  • Points: 6.7
  • Rebounds: 3.6
  • Assists: 6.4
  • Free throws: 76.3 percent
  • Steals: 1.6

To be fair, Rubio suffered a sprained elbow at the beginning of the season and he even admitted to the Star Tribune that he doesn't feel like himself.
