Seattle Storm wins third WNBA title

Seattle Storm players Sue Bird Jewell Loyd and Breanna Stewart celebrate during the first half of Game 3 of the WNBA Finals Wednesday night in Fairfax Va

"It's already in the past", Thibault said. ".We had a goal and that was to win a championship and every one of us, 1-12, the coaching staff, our entire staff helped us reach this point".

Stewart, Bird and Delle Donne could all join Team USA before they open play at the FIBA Women's World Cup beginning September 22 in Spain.

The Mystics began the season picked to finish eighth in the Associated Press preseason poll. And it was her performance in the fourth quarter of Game 5 against Phoenix that put Seattle in the championship series, hitting four 3-pointers and scoring 14 of her 22 points during a brilliant six-minute stretch that left the likes of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James singing her praises on social media.

Out of all of the insane moments in the Storm's series against the Mercury - arguably the most intense five games of the entire playoffs - Bird's Game 5 takeover will likely be the most memorable.

In her fourth year in the league, Loyd is becoming increasingly strong. When I got her the next year with the U-19, even the amount of improvement in that one year was incredible.

"We've come a long way", he said. Kristi Toliver had 20 points. "And so we're poised to get better".

As bedlam burst and champagne poured, Breanna Stewart stood tall inside the cramped, plastic-lined visitor's locker room and allowed herself a smile of gratification.

Delle Donne made a halftime adjustment, attacking from outside the paint more instead of playing with her back to the basket. And for Stewart, the second of those No.1 picks, there was one person above all others that she wanted to share the moment with.

WNBA Most Valuable Player Breanna Stewart of the Seattle Storm was unanimously selected to the 2018 All-WNBA First Team, the WNBA announced today. Cambage finished the regular season as the league's leading scorer, averaging 23 points per game.

"They're the defending champs now, they're young, they're really talented, they're smart, and they know how to play with each other", Washington coach Mike Thybault said. "We're not just going to be satisfied that we got here this season - we've got to improve because everyone else is".

Back in their offices at Capital One Arena on Thursday morning, the Washington Mystics went about the quotidian details of breakdown day before disbanding for the offseason. "I've seen her as a youngster, and I have seen her with the Storm, and she really is truly incredible". Even in defeat, their budding connection was on full display.

"They definitely supported us during the season.to see the turnout at the playoffs, it was huge for us", Bird said. "God blessed me with an opportunity to coach her and I will be forever grateful".

And then Delle Donne turned her head to her right and responded, "Trust me". "The difference between really good teams at this level, can be if you're able to get production from places that you don't normally expect".
