As you see, the Rockets will be on national television for the first four game of the series. This is important as not all playoff series have their games on national television, some on NBATV which would likely be blacked out in Houston.

If you’re an East Coast Rockets fans then you better be ready to stay up late. The NBA has scheduled the first four games for late starts to give the Trail Blazers fans an opportunity to watch their team on primetime, thus giving East Coast Rockets fans a late night.

The Rockets and Blazers finished with the exact same record, but the Rockets won the season series 3-1, winning the tiebreaker. The Rockets have home court advantage for this seven-game series, which will follow a 2-2-1-1-1 format.
