Seahawks react to Seattle Storm's third WNBA championship

Point guard Natasha Cloud says of the Mystics “We do play our best when we’re under pressure. Everyone steps up.”

Point guard Natasha Cloud says of the Mystics “We do play our best when we’re under pressure. Everyone steps up.”

They wanted to win one 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. Stewart had 25 points in each of the first two meetings but was held to 10 in the final matchup. "This is all about Sue". 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. Bird said. "That's when I knew it was over". The Mystics fared well enough without her in the regular season, ending with the league's fifth-most productive offense, but she was sorely missed when Washington was pitted against Seattle's polished sharpshooters.

Winning and alcohol creates potent truth serum where confessions and secrets are revealed.

The legendary University of CT women's basketball coach sat next to his long-time assistant Chris Daley watching the most decorated player they'd ever coach do what she always does - dominate and win. "To do it with this group, the way we did it, I don't even know how to react".

"She never gives up". "She makes your team better". "I, unfortunately, wasn't able to practice a lot in the moments that we had off, so I was kind of trying to figure out my go-to moves as games were going on and just trying to get comfortable finding different ways". And we did that.

Stewart was a part of 151 victories and only five losses at UConn.

Sixteen-year veteran Sue Bird played with a broken nose, blood flowing from under the plastic mask she wore. Natasha Howard and Alysha Clark played key roles, too, in a commanding 3-0 series sweep over the Washington Mystics. She finished with 29 points and a game-high 14 rebounds.

Apple 2018 Event Recap: iPhone Xs, Xs Max, Xr, Apple Watch
If you're an iPhone 6s devotee, you can still buy the devices through your carrier, or find refurbished versions online. But remember, Apple used LCD screens up until last year's iPhone X , so longtime fans shouldn't feel the need to rebel.

The season has not only been her most successful, but her most transformational. By the time starting center LaToya Sanders sprained her ankle while saving a loose ball, eventually getting carried to the locker room, the game had largely gotten away from Washington.

Bird understands her career is nearing the end, even though she remains among the league's best. Washington won a Game 7 to win the title in 1978, while Seattle defeated the Bullets in five games to win the title a year later.

In 2004, she partnered with Lauren Jackson and Finals MVP Betty Lennox for an unexpected Finals win. She truly was the MVP of these Finals. Beyond the obvious, the circumstances of a venue change (thanks, Drake and Migos), the rise of the Washington Mystics in a short period of time has been nothing short of remarkable. We have a relatively young team.

Then there is Ariel Atkins (22), who just completed a solid rookie campaign many did not see coming.

The answer came almost four months later with a championship.

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.

The ultra-confident, steely cool Stewart had a feeling about this game, just as she had a feeling about this series and this season.
