Video: Ricky Rubio finds Deandre Ayton with the near-full court alley-oop
The Phoenix Suns faced off against the New York Knicks on Thursday night, and the Suns were able to easily put away the Knicks on the road. A key reason was a huge game from Deandre Ayton, which was punctuated by this scintillating beyond half-court alley-oop from Ricky Rubio to the big man:

Ayton finished with a mammoth stat line of 26 points (on 11 of 15 shooting) with 21 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks in only 34 minutes.
The Suns walloped the hometown Knicks by a final score of 121 to 98, and this play was typical of the overall dominance with which the visiting Suns played on Thursday. All of the team’s starters finished with double digits in on/off rating, with the lowest being a lofty +16 from starting small forward Mikal Bridges.
