Wizards

If these five things happen Sunday, the Wizards will advance and secure franchise's first sweep in a seven-game series (CSN, CSNwashington.com and NBC Sports Live Extra, 6 p.m. ET).
Otto Porter was credited with a turnover late in the fourth quarter that was challenged in the Game 3 report from the league.
The Wizards and Raptors are in different mental spaces right now except in one way: Both know the closeout game is often the toughest win of all.
