Since the Kevin Love era in Minnesota, Ricky Rubio has always been a plus-minus star. Known for his flashy passes, it’s actually Rubio’s defense that makes the biggest difference. Rubio has been the NBA’s most underrated defender for a while now. He’s a pest in passing lanes and incredible off the ball denying the ball from his man. He’s also big and gets over screens to contest shots and overall a really smart team defender. The Timberwolves allow just 98.6 points per 100 possessions with Rubio on the court, equaling the the Pacers’ defense this season. When Rubio sits, the Timberwolves allow 109.4 points, which is worse than the 30th ranked Lakers defensively.
