Seattle Storm wins 3rd WNBA championship

Seattle Storm wins 3rd WNBA championship

Washington had one last push in the fourth quarter, cutting Seattle's lead to just five points with less than seven minutes left in the game behind a huge 3-point bucket from Tierra Ruffin-Pratt. "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".

But they wanted to do it for her - their 37-year-old leader who is the heart and soul of the franchise. "This is all about Sue".

Then he watched them turn into the best team in the league during the season, and validate that status in the postseason. I was able to get to the free-throw line.

Winning and alcohol creates potent truth serum where confessions and secrets are revealed. This has been an outstanding season for this team and without a doubt, their best season in franchise history. "We're already onto the next thing". "Look, this isn't about me". And we did that. "But this is a very special moment that I'm a part of this special group, and I think I'm just realizing how special they really were".

In truth, it was never really much of a secret. We went through a rebuild a couple of years ago, and who's to say we'd get here this quickly. Just as Black Mamba relinquished his throne to a younger LBJ, Diana "White Mamba" Taurasi basically passed the baton to Seattle Stew in the Phoenix Mercury's five-game semifinals loss.

Natasha Howard added 29 points and 14 rebounds. The game, which saw Seattle overcome the Washington Mystics 98 - 82 for the sweep, was also up 33% from last year's Game 3.

She had 10 assists and 10 points in Seattle's championship-clinching win against Washington on Wednesday. Hayes, in her seventh season after graduating from UConn in 2012, was a second-round draft pick by the Dream. She was carried to the locker room and did not return. "She's exactly what you want in a point guard and a leader". She helped the Storm spark an early run off of extra shot opportunities and offensive rebounds and careless Mystics turnovers also helped Seattle early on.

Hughes came out of retirement at age 63 for one more crack at a WNBA title, which had eluded him during 15 previous seasons coaching in San Antonio, Cleveland and Charlotte.

Bird hasn't talked about retirement, and based on her success this season and Stewart's hope that they win more titles together it isn't coming for at least a few more years.

But they're gone now and only Bird remains.

The answer came almost four months later with a championship. The Mystics made the mistakes a young team makes, especially on the interior. Case in point: can you imagine planned construction on Capital One Arena during either the National Basketball Association or NHL postseason, forcing the Wizards or Caps to play elsewhere?

"This is advice", Bird said.

Taj McWilliams-Franklin played until she was 42.

"They clearly were the best team from start to finish, in my opinion", Thibault said. "Now I can go to the bar, order her everything she needs".
