Seattle Storm sweep Washington Mystics for WNBA Championship

Storm forward Breanna Stewart is all smiles during warmups before the Seattle Storm take on the Washington Mystics for game two of the WNBA Finals at Key Arena in Seattle Sunday

The 2016 UConn graduate put her name on another Wednesday night when she and the Seattle Storm finished off a three-game sweep of the Washington Mystics in the WNBA Finals with a 98-82 road victory.

Storm forward and league MVP Breanna Stewart said she wasn't sure if she would go.

"Whenever you go up 2-0, you understand that teams are going to be desperate", said Bird, who has won two WNBA championships, including in 2010 when Seattle swept Atlanta. Kristi Toliver had 22 points.

The location, George Mason University, marked the third arena Washington has called home this season and the second in the playoffs.

As bedlam burst and champagne poured, Breanna Stewart stood tall inside the cramped, plastic-lined visitor's locker room and allowed herself a smile of gratification. The Storm know they won't be able to completely neutralize Washington's star tandem, which is averaging a combined 23.5 points in the best-of-five series, but Seattle must look to limit their touches and attempts. 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.

"I think that series, looking back on Phoenix, it's something that we really learned from", Stewart said. "If I'm exhausted, she can guard [Elena] Delle Donne, and if she's exhausted, I can do it". "From letting a team back into the game, to end of game how we're handling things". This year, she played a starring role. Sanders would return to the end of the Washington bench by the end of the game with her left leg elevated on other chairs and managed to crutch her way off the court once the Seattle celebration began.

After trailing 69-53 entering the fourth quarter, the Mystics rallied to within five points at 72-67 on a 3-pointer by Tierra Ruffin-Pratt with 6:49 remaining.

"More complete", Hughes said Thursday when asked how he felt now. The love Seattle is showing them undoubtedly will make them hungry for more. We have only played together with this core group basically for two years, and we have some reinforcements coming next year. "Defensively, they had a better identity this year". She also earned her 13th selection to the All-WNBA First Team or Second Team, passing Tamika Catchings and Lisa Leslie (12 each) for the most in league history. The good news? If you're Washington, you have to feel a certain level of confidence that shots will fall.

Howard was a deep reserve for Minnesota during the Lynx's title run past year, averaging 1.1 points and 0.9 points. "This isprobably going to be one of the defining moments of my career".
