Seattle Storm sweeps Washington Mystics

The Storm’s starters celebrate widening their lead late in the second quarter as the Seattle Storm take on the Washington Mystics for game three of the WNBA Finals at Eagle Bank Arena in Fairfax Virginia Wednesday

For years, Bird has sidestepped talk about when she'll put an end to a Hall-of-Fame bound career that includes two NCAA titles at CT, four Olympic gold medals, three FIBA world championships and four EuroLeague championships. She finished with 29 points and a game-high 14 rebounds.

The Mystics have the talent and also the necessary team chemistry to get the most out of themselves. Seattle ended up losing that game by 2 points, and in an essay for The Players' Tribune Bird said that she was proud of the team because they proved they could do it without her - something she's been pushing them to realize all season.

"We shot the ball extremely well and I don't know if it was our defense or shots just not going in for them", coach Dan Hughes said. It was another six years before she was back in the finals winning another title. "I've seen her as a youngster, and I have seen her with the Storm, and she really is truly fantastic. God blessed me with an opportunity to coach her and I will be forever grateful". Relive the TOP 5 PLAYS from #WNBAFinals Game 3 as @seattlestorm clinched the title. All of this was new, and yet, all of it felt like it had happened before, even to Stewart. "There is probably no comparison to be honest". "I think that they are really, really good and I love watching them play". "Now I can go to the bar, order her everything she needs".

The coach sensed something brewing early in his first year with the franchise.

It was Bird who scored the go-ahead basket in an overtime win to beat Phoenix in Game 2 of the semifinals.

"We had a goal for this year".

"We don't feel like we peaked and this is it for us", Elena Delle Donne said.

"We've come a long way", he said.

Washington reached the Finals for the first time in franchise history.

The Mystics began the season picked to finish eighth in the Associated Press preseason poll. She motivates me and in return, you want to give her something too. That's a pretty important thing to know about Panda.

"I'm going to need a lot tonight", Toliver replied. The Storm's previous championships came in 2004 and 2010. Alysha Clark has been the trigger of their suffocating defense all season, was again on Wednesday, and added 15 points in the clincher.

Diana Taurasi, Mercury: The WNBA's all-time points leader tied for third in the league in scoring with 20.7 points per game, her highest average since 2011. They forgot about their past, which included seven straight playoffs losses on the road and focused entirely on Game 3. The Mystics joined that unwanted club. She had just accepted the WNBA Finals MVP trophy, and was still in shock from the 98-82 Game 3 win over the Washington Mystics.

Breanna Stewart won four NCAA championships at UConn and won four Final Four MVP awards.

Students kept rooting for the Storm into the fourth quarter, where the game got close, but never close enough.

This is likely just the beginning for the dynamic 24-year-old forward, who won the NCAA Championship during each of her four seasons at the University of CT. Stewart had 25 points in each of the first two meetings but was held to 10 in the final matchup. "So to end it this way, there's nothing better". If a player received votes at multiple positions, she was slotted at the position where she received the most votes.
