It sure seems like Ricky Rubio is getting a lot of steals lately, right?

Yes.

But just how many?

Well, according to the Timberwolves' hard-working PR department -- or maybe just Elias, which they credited -- Rubio has 43 steals in the past 10 games. That's more than any other player in a 10-game stretch since Metta World Peace (then Ron Artest) in 2002.

It's also the fourth-best total in a 10-game span in the past 20 years.

Unfortunately, the Wolves are 3-7 in that stretch.
