One of the fun things not including the actual basketball during the postseason to watch is what jerseys the Houston Rockets will wear. It seems to have been decided for the Jazz series!

The Houston Rockets are gearing up for the playoffs after officially getting their matchup on the last day of the regular season. They will be facing off against the Utah Jazz starting on Sunday night at 8:30 CT on TNT.

Throughout the years in the playoffs, it’s been interesting to see what jerseys the Rockets will end up wearing in their runs. During the 2017 postseason, for example, the team really favored the then-new black jerseys. They had a similar mindset last season, using mostly the red and black Nike jerseys.

Houston will do something similar this season. Let’s take a look at what the Rockets will wear during this Jazz series. All this info is courtesy of Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic!

Home games

It has been confirmed that the Rockets will wear their new red “Earned” edition jerseys for the first two home games against the Jazz this year. This new uni was a fan favorite when it first released on Christmas Day and the team really seems to like them.

The signature win in these jerseys, of course, is the one against the Warriors in January. James Harden knocked down the game-winner in a monster performance.

Road games

The Rockets will stick with their “Statement” black jerseys during the two road games starting next Saturday night. This is the third year in a row in the three years that Houston has had black jerseys that they will be used in the postseason.

I’m a big fan of these unis. I personally think they are the best one the Rockets have in their arsenal. It will be nice to see them in action once again!

Next. Players to watch against the Jazz

The jersey combos are all fun and games, but let’s go out there and try to only wear each one twice in this series. Beat the Jazz!
