Which of these 3 Scenarios is most advantageous to in a playoff Series.

A) Winning Game 1 of a playoff series (without HCA)
or
B) Winning Game 5 of a Playoff Series with the Series Tied (2-2) (without HCA)
or
C) Having Homecourt Advantage in a Playoff Series

I think winning game 5 of a playoff series when it's ties 2-2.

Reason being: i'd rather have to win 1 out of 2 games to win a championship than 3 out of 6.

BTW JB,

there should only be options A and B.

Option A: need to win 1 out of 2.
Option B: need to win 3 out of 6.
Option C: need to win 4 out of 7

Options A and B would give the team HCA in any situation.

My thoughts exactly.

I would prefer to have to win 1 out of 2 games where one of those would be on my home court than have to win three out of six with 3 games on homecourt. I prefer to have an advantage late in a series than earlier in a series.

it's always better to break a tie by winning the closer your team is to the title
