Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio set a world record Friday morning by making 18 shots from behind the backboard in less than a minute.

The impressive shooting performance took place at the Orange County Convention Center after practice for Friday night’s Rising Stars Challenge. Rubio took the record from Philadelphia 76ers guard Evan Turner, who just 30 minutes earlier, drained 14 shots to brake the previous world record of 10. After back-to-back misses, Rubio hit 16 consecutive shots to set the mark.
