Seattle Storm sweeps Washington Mystics

Breanna Stewart, Elena Delle Donne among All-WNBA first-team selections LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, other NBA stars react to Seattle Storm’s WNBA title

She had just accepted the WNBA Finals MVP trophy, and was still in shock from the 98-82 Game 3 win over the Washington Mystics.

The Seattle Storm bench celebrates in the third quarter against the Washington Mystics during Game 1 of the WNBA Finals on September 7, 2018 in Seattle.

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.

After scoring 10 points of 4-for-11 shooting in Game 1, Delle Donne - who suffered a bone bruise in her left knee in the semifinals - scored 17 points on 7 of-16 shooting in Game 2 while switching from a brace to a sleeve. It was a rare show of emotion from a normally reserved Bird, and the 14 points she dropped in the fourth, including four threes, to send the Storm to the Finals set social media ablaze. Howard was right behind her, dropping a double-double 29 points and 14 rebounds in the win, shooting 11-of-14 from the field. "When you're on the other side of it, you try to slow her down and obviously, we didn't get that done".

"We were both playing in Russian Federation at the time; she was playing on a team in Moscow, I was playing on a team in Ekaterinburg, and both of our flights were out of NY to Moscow", said Bird. The team was young, and Bird knew they were rebuilding, but she chose to stay. She truly was the MVP of these Finals. Later that night, Washington lost the decisive Game 3 of the Finals at George Mason's Eagle Bank Arena in Fairfax, the team's second different home-away-from-home. 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.

Elena Delle Donne, Tiffany Hayes, and Diana Taurasi rounded out the First Team.

WNBAElena Delle Donne boxes out Breanna Stewart. 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. Donning a clear face mask to avoid any more damage to her nose, Bird got tied up with Phoenix's DeWanna Bonner and Briann January in the fourth quarter and got up off the floor yelling that her face mask had been shoved.

"Not only does Sue understands the things we need to do on the court to be successful, she's knowledgeable about what it takes off the court to be at your best like diet, taking care of yourself and making sure you get proper rest". "Teams are going to have to figure out some ways to match up and have as much fire power as they do because even on the nights that you play pretty good defense, they still - they just have so many weapons to put the ball in the basket". That got us before. 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.

"We had a lot of growing up to do and maturing to do and this group really hasn't played together long as a group, he said". One of the league's most decorated players also grasps the impact of her latest triumph.

"It doesn't feel real yet, honestly", WNBA Finals MVP Breanna Stewart said after the game.
