Well, it’s another Houston Rockets vs. Utah Jazz playoff series starting tonight, and the writers at TDS have you covered with their predictions for this first-round matchup. The Rockets dominated the Jazz in the regular-season last season, an indication of the playoff series to come. This season’s split could be a sign of what to expect as well. It was definitely enough for the Jazz to believe they are on a much more level playing field. The Rockets never lacked confidence, but the blowout win in Utah indicated they could end a series on one of the league’s toughest home courts for visiting teams if necessary.
The Utah Jazz and Houston Rockets played a spirited and competitive first-round playoff series last season that Houston ultimately won in five games. They will meet again in the first round of the 2019 NBA Playoffs, with Game 1 set for Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. ET
