WNBA Champions Storm vs Mystics Game 3 Recap

Seattle's Sue Bird passes in front of the Mystics Elena Delle Donne in the second half of Game 2

After eliminating Phoenix in a thrilling five-game series in the 2018 WNBA Semifinals, the Storm collected two triumphs in the Emerald City against Washington (89-76 on September 7; 75-73 on September 9) before defeating the Mystics on Wednesday to complete the sweep.

With Mystics star Elena Delle Donne appearing to get stronger with each passing day, the Storm can't afford to give away any games. A young Seattle team that lost in the first round the past two years and won just 15 games last season, obliterated Washington for its first crown since 2010.

The Storm's 2018 WNBA Championship Parade will take place on Sunday, Sept. 16.

Finally, Wednesday night, the obstacles - namely a truly deserving Seattle Storm team - became one too many. The team, which formed in 1998, had been to the semifinals twice before this season, losing to NY in 2002 and to the eventual champion Minnesota Lynx in 2017.

Webb went on to play collegiate basketball at Seattle University and helped the Redhawks to a 20-9 record (co-champions of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference) his senior year in 2006-2007.

Stewart added the playoff MVP to her trophy case after winning the same award for the regular season.

Natasha Howard, who won a title with the Minnesota Lynx last season, had 29 points on 11-for-14 shooting and a game-high 14 rebounds for the Storm.

Upon entering EagleBank Arena - the site of Wednesday's game, as the Mystics' usual home at Capital One Arena undergoes renovations - the Storm received an inadvertent welcome despite being 2,700 miles from home. In Game 4, in addition to losing Sue Bird to a broken nose, the Storm relinquished a 17-point lead over the course of three quarters.

Stewart was not sure what her plans were for Thursday, but said she had a role model to watch. Celebrate Sue Bird, Breanna Stewart and all of Seattle with this licensed championship t-shirt. "You know it's early, it's early for us, but to have this kind of support, this is what it's all for".

The brilliant Breanna Stewart, arguably the best women's basketball player in the world, hit a tough shot in traffic, was fouled, and completed the three-point play.

With a veteran point guard in Bird and the MVP in Stewart, there was no panic from the Storm.

"You just never know when you're going to be back - you're going to make me cry - and I didn't think I'd be back, " Bird said. I didn't know if I'd be back to the finals ever again.

Check out the brand new t-shirt - which honors the Storm's previous titles and their current roster - below. "[Turnovers have] just stopped us from getting into the flow we want to get into".

Delle Donne was also named to the All-WNBA First Team on Wednesday.
