What do you get when you combine Ricky Rubio with a basketball and a little girl?

The most adorable situation of all-time!

A little girl walked onto the court during a delay in the Timberwolves-Jazz game Tuesday night. Because she was incredibly cute and the game was delayed, she was allowed to hang out for a few seconds. Rubio took advantage of the opportunity and he practiced bounce passes with her.

Yahoo! Sports put together a 23-picture photo gallery of the moment.

The Wolves won the game in blowout fashion. Rubio had one of his best games of the season, finishing with 11 points, 13 assists, five rebounds and five steals.

The little girl has a bright basketball future, according to Rubio.
