Storm sweep Mystics, win third WNBA title

Breanna Stewart Sue Bird and the Seattle Storm swept Washington in the WNBA Finals

The Seattle Storm claimed their third WNBA title on Wednesday night, defeating the Washington Mystics, 98-82, to complete a three-game sweep in the best-of-five series.

WNBA Most Valuable Player Breanna Stewart of the Seattle Storm was unanimously selected to the 2018 All-WNBA First Team, the WNBA announced Wednesday.

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.

Elena Delle Donne scored 23 points for the Mystics.

In Game 2 of the Finals, Bird sank an improbable 35-foot three-pointer to beat the buzzer in the fourth and provide an emotional lift during a 75-73 victory.

"Each (championship) is special in its own way, but this one is probably going to have a different meaning for me", said the 37-year-old point guard who had 10 points and 10 assists. However, she was scoreless in the fourth quarter.

Natasha Howard added career-high 29 points and 14 rebounds for the Storm. "You knew that this was game two and they were going to come out like a better D.C. team than we saw in game one".

The Mystics, on the other hand, didn't have a single player score in double figures, and only had two points off the bench. "We went through that and now I think we'll handle it much better".

She also claims that Fager told her to apologize to the other producer to "mitigate conflict in the office". Jericka Duncan , a CBS News correspondent, checked in with Fager about the claims against him.

In 2004, she partnered with Lauren Jackson and Finals MVP Betty Lennox for an unexpected Finals win. That is something that Seattle's Sue Bird and Washington's Kristi Toliver did together years ago that served as the start of a strong friendship that has grown over the past six years. "[Turnovers have] just stopped us from getting into the flow we want to get into".

Perhaps opposing teams are being more careful defending Delle Donne, because when she does get to the line, she's automatic. I didn't know (Toliver's' favorite) beer.

As did numerous players who represent those teams, such as Seahawks stars Earl Thomas, Russell Wilson and Frank Clark. 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. I get that. But I can't help but hear something else, too: "They're forgetting about the Storm".

The Storm were 27-3 this season when leading after the third quarter heading into the game.

"We feel really good, we feel really positive". Everyone has to have an "I love you off the court, but I'm going to kill you on the court" type of mentality.

"Obviously, it's really frustrating to not come away with the win, but we were able to see a lot of things, and we get to build on it for these next three games", Delle Donne said. Each lost Game 3. One of the league's most decorated players also grasps the impact of her latest triumph.

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.

For Bird, the season was proof that she made the right decision a few years back when her contract was nearing its end.
