Last night, after nearly three months on the shelf, Ricky Rubio returned to action to the Timberwolves.
And while the Wolves came up on the short end of last night's 100-94 decision in Dallas, Ricky's return was highlighted by two slick passes, one to Thad Young and another to stud rookie Andrew Wiggins.
Here's the dish to Thad:
And here's Ricky's alley-oop to Wiggins:
Ricky Rubio's wraparound bounce pass to Thad Young is absolutely absurd https://t.co/CiywBDEUTP— CJ Fogler (@cjzero) February 3, 2015

The Wolves were 2-2 when Ricky went down with a severe ankle sprain on November 7 in Orlando, just days after he signed a 4-year, $56 million extension. They went 6-37 in his absence, with last night's loss dropping them to a league-worst 8-40 on the season.
