NBA: Ricky Rubio comes back

Ricky Rubio comes back from knee surgery to help the Cavaliers beat the Blazers


Ricky Rubio played in his first game since he hurt his knee more than a year ago, and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Portland Trail Blazers 119-113 in the fourth quarter on Thursday night.

The Cavaliers said he was questionable to play before the game, but with 3:38 left in the first quarter, he came off the bench. 



Rubio scored a total of nine points in 10 minutes. He made two 3-pointers in the third quarter, which helped him do this. On December 28, 2021, the 32-year-old tore his left anterior cruciate ligament while driving to the basket in New Orleans.

The Cavaliers were down 74–70 when Rubio hit a 3-pointer in the middle of the third quarter. The Blazers' answer came from Jerami Grant, who made a 3. 


Another 3-pointer from Rubio cut the Cavs' deficit to 82-77, and the Cavs kept the gap at less than 10 points. 


Rubio said, "There were a lot of feelings out there today." "I've been working hard all year to get healthy, so I'm glad I can play basketball now."
