"One game leads us to what we've been working for for four months, and just having that mindset".
The Storm became the sixth team to sweep a Finals in three games - something the team did in 2010.
"Stewie was just wonderful", Storm coach Dan Hughes said. She truly was the MVP of these Finals. Loyd and Stewart would prove instrumental, and Bird's continued success and leadership late into her career has been a key to the team's development over the past few years.
"Each (championship) is special in its own way, but this one is probably going to have a different meaning for me", said 37-year-old point guard Bird.
But Stewart was fouled by Delle Donne while making a jump shot from the free-throw line on the next possession and converted the three-point play, sparking an 8-0 run to put Seattle back in control. We went through a rebuild a couple of years ago, and who would know we get here this quickly.
Marcus Rashford proves his worth, leading patchy England to win over Swiss
England manager Gareth Southgate reckons a certain Manchester United star is developing faster than Cristiano Ronaldo did when he was growing up.
The coach sensed something brewing early in his first year with the franchise.
"Obviously, this finals didn't go the way we wanted it". "We knew what we had to do to actually win a title and that's what we did".
"We don't feel like we peaked and this is it for us", Elena Delle Donne said. The club's first-ever trip to the WNBA Finals is even more impressive considering how much better the league is in 2018.
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. "What she did this year was ahead of schedule for us". "I am really happy for her".
Stewart, the 2018 WNBA MVP, directed Seattle to its second-best record (26-8) in franchise history and the top seed in the WNBA Playoffs. They forget about their past, which included seven straight playoff losses on the road and focused entirely on Game 3. The Mystics joined that unwanted club.
The Storm earned their 3rd WNBA title Wednesday night in Fairfax, Virginia in three games of a best-of-5 series.
Donald Trump’s autumn visit to Ireland postponed
Speaking on The Marty Squad on RTE Radio One on 2 September, the Taoiseach explained: "It came a little bit out of the blue". Trump had planned a trip to his resort in Doonbeg as well as meeting Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and President Michael D.
Despite the misfires, Washington rallied from down 18 points to trailing 72-67 with 6:49 remaining. Its star Breanna Stewart has already registered 30 points, including 17 before the break.
"I'm sure he's going to say we're not invited anyway". "It was how we countered that when things got close".
"The fans did a really good job of getting behind us throughout this run".
Bird is now celebrating her third championship with the Storm.
Stewart had stewed during her first two Storm seasons, unwilling to accept mediocrity after such a storied collegiate and Olympic career.
Then he watched them turn into the best team in the league during the season, and validate that status in the postseason.
