Seahawks react to Seattle Storm's third WNBA championship

WNBA Finals- Game Three

If the Storm's first title in 2004 was unexpected bliss and the 2010 run to a championship when Seattle won a franchise-best 28 games during the regular season before going undefeated in the playoffs was dominant, then this iteration of the Storm was a combination of the previous championship teams.

"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.

Only after Sue Bird found her streaking to the basket once again through a lane in the Mystics defense did Stewart's face register acknowledgement of the enormity of her success: a 30-point performance and a set of games that left no doubt as to who the best player in the world is right now: Stewart, the 2018 WNBA MVP and Finals MVP. Alysha Clark added 15 points and nine rebounds, and Sue Bird, a member of all three Seattle championship teams, had 10 points and 10 assists.

It was also reported that Mystics star Elena Delle Donne was a guest on the next episode of LeBron's HBO show 'The Shop.'

The location, George Mason University, marked the third arena Washington has called home this season and the second in the playoffs. In hopes of lighting a fire under his team, head coach Mike Thibault verbally assaulted an official before heading to the locker room for intermission, which earned him a technical foul.

Stewart had stewed during her first two Storm seasons, unwilling to accept mediocrity after such a storied collegiate and Olympic career. There is plenty of time to break down the season once the sting dulls from Wednesday's 98-82 loss to Seattle in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals. It's their first Finals appearance in franchise history. "I would have loved to have made those last two at the end, but the majority of the game, just being aggressive, assertive and doing the plays to win the game".

Bird has played on all three championship teams.

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

If this were the National Basketball Association, the Washington Mystics' front office might be making calls to players of Paul George's or Kawhi Leonard's caliber right now.

"I'm going to need a lot tonight", Toliver replied.

Diana Taurasi, Mercury: The WNBA's all-time points leader tied for third in the league in scoring with 20.7 points per game, her highest average since 2011. "It came down to a stop, and I thought we really did a good job".

"Honestly, it didn't feel like my first WNBA Finals closeout".

Despite the misfires, Washington rallied from down 18 points to trailing 72-67 with 6:49 remaining. She motivates me and in return, you want to give her something too. She detailed little moments along the way of their 2018 season, the things she said she will miss most this fall and winter when everyone goes their separate ways. In the end, the Storm, who dominated the regular season, proved to be the league's best team.
