Rubio goes between the legs of Cousins and throws alley oop to Griffin

Published on February 25, 2012 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Yes, I know the Rising Stars Challenge was an exhibition game but still you have to be impressive with the passing ability and flash of Ricky Rubio. In these games no one goes full out on defense, but they sure go all out on offense. Everyone tries to make the highlight play.

That play of the night from this game came from Rubio. After a made shot Rubio got the pass in bounds and went to work. Right before he got to halfcourt DeMarcus Cousins tried to get in his way but Rubio put the ball between Cousins legs with the dribble. Then Rubio dribbled the whole way to the three point line where he threw the alley oop to Blake Griffin, who threw it down. There were a lot of great plays on the night but Rubio had the best.
