Stewart, Storm surge past Mystics for WNBA title

Breanna Stewart led the Seattle Storm to their third WNBA title Wednesday night, scoring 30 points in a 98-82 victory over the Washington Mystics in Game 3 of the best-of-five series. She scored 10 points in Game 1, 17 in Game 2 and 23 in Game 3.

Howard was the unexpected star of Game 3, who finished with 29 points and a game-high 14 rebounds.

Hoisting the WNBA Finals trophy and being named Finals MVP capped off a brilliant season for the third-year pro. Sloppy passing led to five steals allowed and eight more "bad pass" turnovers for the Mystics, and they did not play tight enough perimeter defense against a Storm team that shot 13-for-26 from the arc. "But we got better throughout the year".

Washington already has staved off elimination on three occasions this postseason: The Mystics routed Los Angeles in a single-elimination second-round matchup at home; they won Game 4 at home in the semifinals; and then they won on the road in a squeaker over Atlanta in Game 5 to advance to the WNBA Finals.

What took place on Wednesday night on the campus of George Mason University, in a green-and-yellow arena turned red-and-blue, would have been hard to imagine just two years ago. "I think that they are really, really good and I love watching them play".

"I gotta say, as exciting as it is to have the Storm making playoff noise - I'm anxious that everyone's not on the same page. One game leads us to what we've been working for for four months, and just having that mindset".

She had 10 assists and 10 points in Seattle's championship-clinching win against Washington on Wednesday.

For Hughes, the focus is on rebounding, particularly on the defensive end to limit second-chance opportunities for Washington's Elena Delle Donne and Toliver. "We all know that we're happy and we're proud of where we were at, but we want to be better and I don't think you have to say that". Point guard Kristi Toliver was right behind her, adding 22 points.

Washington reached the Finals for the first time in franchise history. "We don't feel like we peaked and this is it for us", Delle Donne said.

"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", said the former league MVP. And after two years of losing, she was ready to win her first title and make sure that it isn't her last. "Now I can go to the bar, order her everything she needs". "I don't know if it was putting us seventh or eighth, I can't remember, and our team took a look at that and said, hell, no". "I'm going to need a lot tonight".

Seattle converted 12 of 25 shots behind the arc, while Washington never found the mark. "And we get to build on it for these next three games". "It really gave us that home court advantage". "Those are huge. Those are huge because not only is she going to score, she's going to distribute well".
