HOUSTON -- Be prepared to cough up a lot of money for the Rockets upcoming playoff series. The boys in red have home court advantage against Portland and that's driving up ticket prices.

the average cost for an opening round ticket is $227 -- that's up nearly 23 percent from last year's opening round.

The most expensive ticket is on the Inner Club level, row 7, for $714.

Game one is Sunday night at the Toyota Center.
