Rubio Plays Catch With Little Girl In Utah

By now, you might have seen this video either on YouTube or during the live feed last night at EnergySolutions Arena in Utah, but Ricky Rubio once again stole the hearts of fans around the country with his actions at center court during the Wolves' 112-97 win over the Jazz. Rubio took a moment during a third quarter timeout to play catch with a little girl, throwing a couple bounce passes to her before the timeout ended and she exited the court with Jazz Bear. It happens at the 45 second mark of the video.

It was an all-around great night for Rubio, who tallied his 12th career 4x5 game with 11 points, 13 assists, five rebounds and five steals. But on the court, there will be many more games like that in his future. What sticks out is this particular moment that this young girl will remember forever, as will many of the fans who were there to witness it firsthand. Nice work, Ricky!
