Ricky Rubio is Stunned by the Nonsense Nikola Pekovic Says

Maybe it was the win that got Nikola Pekovic giddy, but the Minnesota Timberwolves center made no sense when speaking to the media after beating the Brooklyn Nets, shocking/amusing Ricky Rubio who was sitting right next to him, not exactly sure what he was hearing.

Pekovic scored 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in the 98-91 win over the Brooklyn Nets, including the big three-point play that gave the Timberwolves the lead with less than a minute left in the game. A good enough reason to get a bit confused in front of the microphones.

You usually don’t say you’ll put a win behind you. It’s usually about forgetting a loss and looking ahead towards the next game. Pekovic talked about forgetting the win, which made Rubio make a priceless face while sitting next to Pekovic.

The Timberwolves have started out the season at 2-2. They are missing Kevin Love in some aspects of their game, obviously, but there’s a good chance the changes they’ve made will put them in a better position to succeed in the future.
