Ricky Rubio sets FIBA all-time assists recordSeptember 10, 2019 | 12:21 PM
Ricky Rubio tallied 19 points, nine assists, five rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in Spain's 90-78 quarterfinal win over Poland.
Rubio, who shot 7-of-11 from the field and made three of his four three-point attempts on the day, is now FIBA's all-time assists leader. The Suns point guard tied Argentina's Pablo Prigioni with his fourth assist in Spain's second round win over Serbia, moving into the top spot by himself with an assist on a Juancho Hernangomez three-pointer early in the second quarter of Tuesday's win over Poland. While there may be some concerns about Rubio's minutes in Phoenix possibly being limited once the team falls out playoff contention, his arrival will benefit the likes of Devon Booker and Deandre Ayton due to his ability as a passer.
