Brandon Jennings has no respect for Ricky Rubio's shooting

Brandon Jennings refused to play defense on Ricky Rubio.

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.
