Seahawks react to Seattle Storm's third WNBA championship

Seahawks react to Seattle Storm's third WNBA championship

Natasha Howard added a career-high 29 points and 14 rebounds while veteran Sue Bird had 10 points and 10 assists in the win.

The Storm closed things out in game three, behind a whopping 30 points from Stewart - who won the Finals MVP Award.

Elena Delle Donne scored 23 points for the Mystics. They became the first team since the Seahawks in 2012 to bring a championship to Seattle.

They know the road back to the Finals is tough, and the WNBA gets better every year, but the Mystics are in a position to stay atop the league now that the franchise's most successful season to date is in the books.

Stewart was 7 when Bird began playing for the Storm in 2002 after being the first pick overall in the WNBA draft. The team, which formed in 1998, had been to the semifinals twice before this season, losing to NY in 2002 and to the eventual champion Minnesota Lynx in 2017.

Stewart, the WNBA's Most Valuable Player this season, added Finals MVP to her resume, which includes four NCAA titles at CT, for which she was named the outstanding player in each of them.

"We knew at halftime when we were up whatever it was, 16, 15, whatever it was [17-point lead, 47-30], that they were going to make a run, they were going to make a push", said Stewart.

Simon & Schuster Has Printed 1 Million Copies of Bob Woodward's 'Fear'
Bob Woodward titled his new book " Fear ", the word Donald Trump once told the journalist described "real power". It's one thousand percent correct.' And then this person has said some public things that contradict that.

She has added to her list of accomplishments the title of MVP of the final, with an average of 25.6 points over the three matches won in the face of the Mystics.

The location, George Mason University, marked the third arena Washington has called home this season and the second in the playoffs.

In her MVP summer, Stewart ranked second in the league in scoring (21.8), third in rebounding (8.4), seventh in blocked shots (1.44), and eighth in steals (1.35) during the regular season.

"They clearly were the best team from start to finish, in my opinion", Thibault said. Celebrate Sue Bird, Breanna Stewart and all of Seattle with this licensed championship t-shirt. Seattle's other title came in 2004. Even though it hadn't been in the WNBA yet, she clearly knows what it takes, and sometimes it just takes a couple of years to really figure out yourself in this league because it's a very tough league to play in, and now here she is. "I feel like we've got a lot of young, great talent".

Howard was a deep reserve for Minnesota during the Lynx's title run previous year, averaging 1.1 points and 0.9 points. "So hopefully everybody goes off to wherever they're going this offseason but continues to improve, get better, and then come back and regroup and build off of this season".

"We can really create something here, and I think we've really grown this fan base", said Delle Donne.

"Obviously, this finals didn't go the way we wanted it".
