That is the Omer Asik we saw so much of last season — he remains one of the best defensive centers in the game. It’s why despite his contract (and the fact Houston can use him) I think some team trades for Asik this summer.
Luc Richard Mbah A Moute got the pass and was going up for the dunk midway through the third quarter Thursday night and Asik shut him down. Rejected. Everything but the finger wag.
That was just one of the highlight plays as Houston cruised to a 129-106 win over a tired Timberwolves team on the second night of a back-to-back.
