Joe Ingles' Utah Jazz have had their NBA season extinguished by the Houston Rockets.

The Rockets defeated the Jazz 100-93 in Houston on Thursday (AEST) to clinch their first-round western conference play-off series 4-1.

The Rockets jumped on the Jazz early taking an 8-0 lead before Ingles broke the drought and energised his team with a three-pointer.

The fourth quarter was a tight contest, although in the final minutes the Jazz repeatedly gave up the ball or missed key baskets.
