Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio converted a ridiculous circus shot while being fouled by Phoenix Suns point guard Goran Dragic on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Spaniard used a Kevin Love screen to dart past Dragic into the paint. The Suns' floor general could only grab helplessly for Rubio's right arm, spinning him around in the process. The contact didn't matter, though, as Rubio flipped a lefty layup over his head and banked it home.

Perhaps Rubio just needs each shot to have a high degree of difficulty, because he's missed wide open layups in the past.
