MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves are struggling, and Ricky Rubio puts a lot of the responsibility on his shoulders.
Rubio is shooting just 34.6 percent this season and scoring 8.6 points per game. Those numbers are the lowest of his short career. He had five turnovers and was benched for the fourth quarter of a home loss to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday.
The magic that made him one of the most exciting players in the NBA when he arrived from Spain has been absent this season while the Timberwolves have started a disappointing 18-20.
Rubio tells The Associated Press that ''I'm not feeling comfortable out there.''
He says it's on him to play better and get the Wolves going. They play next at Toronto on Friday night.
