Sue Bird and the Seattle Storm Win 2018 WNBA Championship

14 September 2018

While Wednesday's 98-82 victory for the Seattle Storm over the Washington Mystics gave the Storm it's third WNBA title, it is the first for Webb.

Natasha Howard added 29 points and 14 rebounds.

Stewart, who also scored 25 points in Game 2 of the finals, led Seattle to the WNBA's best record (26-8) while averaging 21.8 points and 8.4 rebounds this season. She laid on the arena floor, slightly below the elevated basketball court where she initially fell from while trying to make a hustle play, where she was in agony as tears ran down her cheeks. "Obviously this isn't how we wanted it to end, but it's an experience we can grow from". "I didn't coach her on the U-17 team in 2010 but I saw her".

"We don't feel like we peaked and this is it for us", Elena Delle Donne said.

Williams later broke her racket and shouted at Ramos, which led to a penalty point and a game penalty. Ramos warned her against receiving coaching early in the second set, which Williams protested.

Fans of the former Huskies paid close attention to the championship game.

The coach sensed something brewing early in his first year with the franchise. "We won this thing". 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.

No wonder players and coaches were exhausted after pulling an all-nighter, celebrating at a nearby restaurant after finishing off a sweep of the Washington Mystics just outside the nation's capital.

"Seattle Stew" was officially born in 2018 as she took League and WNBA Finals MVP honors, eliminating any debate about who the LeBron James of the women's game will be going forward. This team made a lot of great strides from last year to this year.

She cited now knowing Toliver's favorite beer, getting to know the families and pets of her teammates, playing games like 'would you rather?' while waiting in airports. "Now I can go to the bar, order her everything she needs".

The championship was Seattle's third in WNBA history. Since the league went to a best-of-five format in 2005, four teams trailed 0-2. "Honestly, I don't know because this is my first time (to win a WNBA title), so I am just going to follow what Sue (Bird) does". Stewart dropped 17 points in the first half, too, going a flawless 4-of-4 from behind the arc.

Bird understands her career is nearing the end, even though she remains among the league's best.

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.

To his detriment, Mystics coach Mike Thibault never found a way to slow down Stewart, who connected on 11 of 22 shots, including 4 of 5 three-pointers in a devastating series-clinching performance. "I don't know if it was putting us seventh or eighth, I can't remember, and our team took a look at that and said, hell, no. That's what really separated us again".
