on the flip side, BKN had a great home record, so it balances out.
Given how close the first two games were, I'd say we have about 40% chance to win either game, which comes up to a 1 in 6 chance we win both (and a 1 in 3 chance we lose both).
Still, a split is by far the most likely outcome and we kind of need it, will be extremely hard to come back from 1-3.
If I was to bet, I'd say we take the 2nd game, it will come after only 1 day of rest, and if we lose the 1st one, we'd have the desperation edge too. But again, in these close games, luck will be the most decisive factor.
About the worst outcome would be to lose both games handily, that would pretty much seal it.
