Storm sweep Mystics, win third WNBA title

Sue Bird and the Seattle Storm are on the verge of a third WNBA title

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.

Sue Bird, Breanna Stewart and Jewell Loyd were the main pieces in the Seattle Storm's march to the 2018 WNBA Championship.

James, of course, knows how it is to be on the other end of a championship loss and wanted to recognize the Mystics for their season.

I predict the Mystics push it to game four with an 85-76 win over Seattle. "We're going to be better", Washington guard Kristi Toliver said after Game 2. However, she was scoreless in the fourth quarter. Howard was right behind her, dropping a double-double 29 points and 14 rebounds in the win, shooting 11-of-14 from the field.

"We said it all year, you can't get too high or too low".

What was billed as a battle between two of the league's most lethal three-point shooting teams turned into a one-sided display for the Storm. "We went through that and now I think we'll handle it much better".

Seattle is in the WNBA Finals for the third time in franchise history.

I think it is a situation that is under control I think but we respect all opinion and maybe some opinions are different to us. Only we need to try, that he understands, and how he understands that it was a mistake. "He's punishing himself.

"We don't feel like we peaked and this is it for us", Delle Donne said. "[Turnovers have] just stopped us from getting into the flow we want to get into".

Elena Delle Donne, Tiffany Hayes, and Diana Taurasi rounded out the First Team. I didn't know (Toliver's' favorite) beer. Seahawks players, staff, and Legends were paying close attention to the local team's performance, and several of them reacted to the Storm's most recent title on Twitter. She made both of her shot attempts, took six free throws, grabbed two rebounds and had two steals in the fourth quarter alone, when Seattle outscored Washington 17-12. A lot of times when I invite people out and they come to a game, they fall in love with the game. "From letting a team back into the game, to end of game how we're handling things". In order for the Mystics to win it all, they'd have to win three straight games, something that has never been done before in a best-of-five finals. Cambage finished the regular season as the league's leading scorer, averaging 23 points per game.

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.

The legendary University of CT women's basketball coach sat next to his long-time assistant Chris Daley watching the most decorated player they'd ever coach do what she always does - dominate and win.

As if to drive the point home, that the Mystics' wander through the postseason desert had reached its nadir, Sue Bird poked her head out from the locker room after morning shoot-around in her green and yellow warmups, perfectly matching the paint and seats of Eagle Bank Arena.
