The Seattle Storm defeated the Phoenix Mercury 94-84 after being down four points prior to Bird's breakout.

Bird played through a broken nose with a mask on and went on to score 22 points, including a big 3-pointer in the 4th quarter to help the Storm seal a trip to the WNBA Finals. Taurasi had been 13-0 in her career in those situations, but couldn't overcome the longest tenured Storm player from going off in the fourth quarter. Not during her time in the WNBA.

Wins over Dallas and CT in the elimination rounds pushed the Mercury's record to 13-0 in winner-take-all games with Taurasi.

Taurasi finished with 17 points, but the Mercury were unable to overcome losing the first two games of the series in Seattle. It didn't take long for National Basketball Association stars like Kobe Bryant and Andre Drummond to stay glued to the screen, or in Isaiah Thomas' case, the game itself, as Seattle Storm point guard Sue Bird scorched the net when it counted most, dropping 14 points in the final 5:48 of regulation to storm back and take over the game. The Storm will advance to the WNBA Finals for the first time since 2010.

The Mercury had a 21-5 scoring run late in the third and into the fourth to turn a 10-point deficit into a six-point lead.

"She's one of our main leaders so obviously it's a little bit different", Seattle forward Alysha Clark said. "An incredible performance by her". Stewart passed to the corner as time expired so the Mercury averted the risk of a second overtime game in the series (Seattle won Game 2, 91-87 in OT). "I was like, 'Oh yeah, good point.' Because a lot of the shots I had been taking in that third quarter, I was really short". She always wants to get everyone else involved. "She was there offensively", Hughes said.

"I was thinking about her the whole game", said Taurasi, who asked Stewart about Bird's condition coming out at halftime. That's routine Sue to me. "When you have a face like Sue, I would worry, too".
