Sorry, but 2-1 only guaruntees home court, not the 3 seed. While we have the tiebreaker on both Memphis and LA, if we go 2-1 and the other 2 win out it would be a 3 way tie record wise, and the Clippers would win that tiebreaker, since they're a division winner. If we have the same record as the Clips, they have the tiebreaker as division winners. Hochman explains it here.
Nugs still need to win out.
