Seattle Storm wins 3rd WNBA championship

Share

During that 10-minute frame, the home team shot just 26.3 percent (5-for-19) from the field to only manage 14 points in the quarter.

The answer came almost four months later with a championship.

The Storm did it in style, completing a three-game sweep of the Washington Mystics on Wednesday with a 98-82 win in Fairfax, Virginia. And this season showed that the city of D.C. will be right there, along for the ride.

The Storm were lead by 2018 MVP Breanna Stewart, who averaged 20.0 points and 8.8 rebounds per game.

League MVP Breanna "Stewie" Stewart led the team with 30 points and 8 rebounds, earning her MVP honors for the championship game. "She truly was the MVP of this league". She was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four an unprecedented four times.

Australian Opal-in-waiting Sami Whitcomb has come off the bench to help the Seattle Storm clinch the WNBA title. "There is probably no comparison to be honest. We went through that and now I think we'll handle it much better". "I'm going to tell you what, they were special in November, January, and when we started April 29th, and they're special tonight".

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

"I think this was our year", Hughes said.

Elena Delle Donne scored 23 points for the Mystics. If we win a championship this week, that will be great.

"Honestly, it does feel a little different", Bird said of this title.

The Washington Mystics weren't expected to be this good, this fast. Past year we were brand new. "I am really happy for her". She won four national championships with the Huskies, Olympic gold in 2016, and world championship gold in 2014 - all on teams coached by Geno Auriemma.

Washington battled Seattle and history. 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.

"It didn't feel like my first WNBA finals closeout game", the poised Stewart said. The Mystics trailed by as many as 18 in the third quarter but clawed within five on a Tierra Ruffin-Pratt 3-pointer with 6:49 left, with Delle Donne scoring or assisting on each basket during an 11-1 run.

Stewart got better with each game - 22 points in Game 1, 25 points in Game 2 and a game-high 30 points in Game 3 - as she was determined to close out this series on Wednesday at EagleBank Arena at George Mason University and not give the Mystics any hope of rallying. "We're already onto the next thing".

Stewart had the ball in her hands in the final seconds of the game, nonchalantly tossing it ahead as the buzzer sounded before turning around and embracing Bird to celebrate the title.

Stewart had stewed during her first two Storm seasons, unwilling to accept mediocrity after such a storied collegiate and Olympic career. "So to end it this way, there's nothing better". One of the league's most decorated players also grasps the impact of her latest triumph.
