3) April 8, 2014: Wolves 110, Spurs 91


This game was a strange one, because it was originally scheduled to be played in Mexico City. Due to a malfunction in that arena, the Wolves played the Spurs in Target Center on April 8. Unlike other contests where Rubio was focused more on his passing game and assisting teammates, he scored 23 points, which was a team-high, going 10-of-18 from the floor. Rubio took full advantage of the fact that Tony Parker was not in the game and was only two points away from tying his career best, 25 points. He had another 7 assists along with his offensive production, leading Corey Brewer, Kevin Love and Gorgui Dieng each to double digits in the points column. Bench players Ronny Turiaf and Luc Mbah A Moute finished in double digits as well. The fact that the Spurs are a team that made the Western Conference finals that year made the win that much sweeter.
