The Rockets need Tucker and Mbah a Moute in this series because of their defense. Mbah a Moute was especially effective on that end in the regular season against the Warriors, who scored only 97.2 points per 100 possessions in 56 minutes when he was on the floor. This is the dream scenario Morey obsessed over: Harden and Paul orchestrating one of the best offenses of all time, young center Clint Capela emerging as a legitimate third star, Tucker and Mbah a Moute along with Ariza keying a drastically improved defense designed to compete against the Warriors. “Obviously, bringing Chris here and Tuck and Luc, we had a vision,” Harden said. “In order to get where we want to go, we needed the right pieces. That’s what they’re here for. Everybody has a role to fill. We go out there and compete at a high level every night on both ends of the floor, and we have to live with the results. But I know if we give the effort that we know we can, it’s pretty tough to beat us.”

Mbah a Moute, who is scheduled to be re-examined in a week, underwent an MRI on Thursday, a day after he braced himself on a fall after a dunk. He said he never dislocated the shoulder before and was told he is not likely to be more susceptible to similar shoulder problems. “It was nothing major so the risk is very, very, very low from what I heard,” Mbah a Moute said. “It’s just a matter of getting the pain out, getting the range of movement and everything back to normal. “It’s getting better. It’s hard for me to tell right now. I’m taking it day-by-day, doing my treatment, staying on top of things and seeing how it goes. I’m hopeful. They said a couple weeks.”
The Rockets signed Mbah a Moute after he opted out of a contract that would have paid him $2.3 million, slightly more than the $2.117 million he will earn this season as the 10th-highest-paid Rocket. “Hey look, we got us a steal,” D’Antoni said. “We got him at the minimum. That’s ridiculous. He’s not a good player, he’s a great player. What he does for the team – runs the floor, he can handle, he can shoot, he can pass, he’s smart, good guy, locker room guy.”
