James Harden headed into Staples Center in full denim drip on April 3 before he and the Rockets dominated the Los Angeles Clippers, 135-103.

Russell Westbrook walked into the Chesapeake Energy Arena in a school-uniform-inspired streetwear outfit before OKC's 123-110 win over the Detroit Pistons on April 5. He sported a giraffe-splashed sweatshirt from Not of this Earth x PacSun Rare. Brodie paired the navy blue sweatshirt with simple khakis cropped above his ankles. The All-Star guard finished the schoolboy look with Dr. J's Converse’s Pro Leather sneakers and a Mickey Mouse dad cap.

Outfit: Sweats for Serge
Serge Ibaka went for a cozy vibe on April 7 before he and the Raptors cooled off the Miami Heat in overtime, 117-109. He wore a trendy sweatsuit designed by Heron Preston featuring the streetwear brand's logo, as well as paintings of herons in tribute to the designer.

DeAndre Jordan let his Southern side show on April 5 when he arrived at the Toyota Center in another casual cowboy look. The Houston native rocked a Purple Haze tee by Palm Angels over a pair of black denim pants.

1) P.J. Tucker, Houston Rockets
Outfit: Tan Like Tucker
While the rest of the league stuck with the trendy looks, P.J. Tucker stayed steady with his own fashion game when he arrived at the Toyota Center on April 5 in a tan monochromatic look before helping Houston down the Knicks, 120-96. The North Carolina native wore a bespoke suit by stylist and designer Paige Geron complete with a matching tee. To finish the look, the 33-year-old sneakerhead wore a pair of Nike SB Dunks in the same tan tone.
