POTD 2/19/12: Jrue Holiday on Ricky Rubio

Jrue Holiday and Ricky Rubio battled all game long on Sunday night.  While Holiday scored big Sixer buckets down the stretch, Rubio dropped 14 of his game-high 22 in the first quarter, single-handedly keeping a floundering T-Wolves team afloat.  Rubio ended up passing off most of the late-game scoring duties to Kevin Love, and although he still managed to out-score Holiday by two (and win the game by one), it could be argued that Jrue won the head-to-head battle.  He certainly took this particular possession…

It’s funny, I didn’t think there was any way Jrue was going to dunk that ball.  His last dribble was kind of low, around his right hip… and as he switched the ball to the left side of his body I figured he’d simply lay it off the glass.  Instead, he whipped it.  Very similar to the dunk he had over Jan Vesely back in January.  I gave that one an 8/10, but this one gets bumped down to a 7.5 ’cause it was over a fellow point guard.
