JavaScript minimax

I am having a bit of trouble visualizing the minimax algorithm.

I understand the concept of recursively iterating through the tree of possibilities. My questions are:

  • When I push the leaf node results into an array or object or combination: -Do I push all of the results and reference each subset to one of the nine base branches? -Do I separate all of the results into a large object that reference the base nodes? -Do I push the results into an array with subsets of arrays within the base array?

Does my dilemma make sense or am I missing something? I may not have explained my issue very clearly, so any input would be appreciated.
