WNBA Finals: Storm sweep Mystics to win third title

The WNBA isn't so different, in the sense that having a collection of top-level players like the Seattle Storm's Breanna Stewart, Natasha Howard and Sue Bird is the best route to a championship.

In Game 1, Washington had no shot as Seattle asserted their dominance.

Hayes averaged career highs of 17.2 points and 2.7 assists to lead Atlanta to the league's second-best record and a berth in the playoff semifinals where the Dream fell in five games to the Mystics.

But everyone on the delirious Storm side may have been happiest for two people - first-year coach Dan Hughes, and the venerated veteran Bird. "She truly was the MVP of this league". She was the Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA Final Four in all four of her college years. "God blessed me with an opportunity to coach her and I will be forever grateful". All of this was new, and yet, all of it felt like it had happened before, even to Stewart.

Stewart upped her points per game once the playoffs rolled around, and Bird and Loyd each had signature scoring performances en route to the trophy. "There is probably no comparison to be honest".

What was billed as a battle between two of the league's most lethal three-point shooting teams turned into a one-sided display for the Storm.

"I'm super proud of this team". "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".

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan tweeted about the celebration Wednesday night after the big win.

"They clearly were the best team from start to finish, in my opinion", Thibault said.

In July Bird said that she believed Stewart opening up about her past had a connection to the maturity she's seen in Stewart this year, also noting that on the court she seemed more confident and driven.

Elena Delle Donne scored 23 points for the Mystics. Point guard Kristi Toliver was right behind her, adding 22 points. We had some great additions along the way, obviously one sitting to my left.

STAR POWER: The matchup between Delle Donne and Stewart highlights the series. "We don't feel like we peaked and this is it for us", Delle Donne said.

The coach's first priority was speaking with the team's young players, who will leave within a week to prepare for their seasons in overseas professional leagues.

ED: "To get her - trust me, I know, I've got you, Panda". That's a pretty important thing to know about Panda. "I am really happy for her". "You knew that this was game two and they were going to come out like a better D.C. team than we saw in game one".

Alysha Clark had 15 points for Seattle. "He didn't invite the last WNBA champions", she said. The Mystics went on a 14-3 run to open the fourth and cut the lead to five.
