Seattle Storm sweep Washington Mystics to capture WNBA championship

WNBA Finals Seattle Storm at Washington Mystics

The team's first two titles came in 2004 and 2010. The parade will begin at 1 p.m. and will end at KeyArena.

"It didn't feel like my first WNBA finals closeout game", the poised Stewart said.

The Mystics began the season picked to finish eighth in the Associated Press preseason poll.

"She's victor, what else can I say", Auriemma said, smiling broadly as Breanna Stewart strolled around EagleBank Arena after the Storm's 98-82 win clutching the WNBA trophy in one hand and the Finals MVP award in the other.

In July Bird said that she believed Stewart opening up about her past had a connection to the maturity she's seen in Stewart this year, also noting that on the court she seemed more confident and driven.

The Storm got their first taste of life without Bird in the semifinals when she broke her nose and had to sit out the remainder of Game 4 against Phoenix.

Stewart was not sure what her plans were for Thursday, but said she had a role model to watch.

What was billed as a battle between two of the league's most lethal three-point shooting teams turned into a one-sided display for the Storm. Bird won two titles in college at CT, and now has won three with the Storm. They cut the lead down to eight points in less than two minutes, which forced a Storm timeout and time to regroup. Perhaps more than anyone, she is soaking in all the celebration "because you can never re-create that", she said. "We don't feel like we peaked and this is it for us", Delle Donne said. I didn't know if I'd be playing at this point.

Neville says Spurs star should have been given England break
He's got that upper body strength, holds people off and brings people into play as he did for the first goal against Spain . I think Harry at that age had hardly played anywhere near the matches for Spurs .

"I didn't ask them to do anything for me", Bird said.

Currie has played in nearly any kind of arena you can imagine over her career, so she understands the value of a true home floor as well. I didn't know (Toliver's' favorite) beer. "And to do it with this group, the way we did it, I don't even know how to react to be honest". I like to push off one leg, and floaters, step-backs, all that off my left leg, so just trying to find a different way to get it done. A lot of times when I invite people out and they come to a game, they fall in love with the game. Howard was right behind her, dropping a double-double 29 points and 14 rebounds in the win, shooting 11-of-14 from the field.

Howard was a deep reserve for Minnesota during the Lynx's title run past year, averaging 1.1 points and 0.9 points.

Moore averaged 18.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and a WNBA-leading 1.68 steals during an injury-plagued season for Minnesota as she earned all-WNBA honors for the seventh consecutive season.

That said, their male counterparts showered the Storm with praises on Twitter.

"Stewie was just fantastic", Storm coach Dan Hughes said.

The coach's first priority was speaking with the team's young players, who will leave within a week to prepare for their seasons in overseas professional leagues.
