When the Utah Jazz and Houston Rockets decide the winner of their best-of-seven playoff series, it’s going to cost a police chief a steak dinner and some embarrassing looks.
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo over Twitter on Saturday offered a challenge to his counterpart in Salt Lake City, Mike Brown. Acevedo wagered a steak dinner that the Rockets would win the NBA Western Conference semifinal series.
Brown accepted and increased the bet. The loser also had to wear the winning team’s hat, while in police uniform, for a day. Acevedo accepted.

The two chiefs know each other through some national policing organizations. Acevedo took the early lead Sunday when the Rockets beat the Jazz 110-96.
