Basketball WNBA: Seattle sacred for the 3rd time


The Seattle Storm hold a commanding 2-0 lead in the five-game series, so it's do or die for the Washington Mystics in game three of the WNBA Finals Wednesday night.

Fellow former Husky and 16-year veteran Sue Bird. And I just remember Sue taking the time after a game to do that.

Bird returned from a broken nose suffered 48 hours earlier for masked heroics, in which she took over in the clutch while scoring 14 of her 22 points in the fourth quarter of a decisive Game 5 win in the semis. Seattle obliterated Washington and became the sixth team to sweep the Finals in three games.

Stewart and Bird have had each had a remarkable year, culminating in a magical end to the season that's been years in the making for their franchise. The team was young, and Bird knew they were rebuilding, but she chose to stay.

Bird added that Seattle must limit turnovers.

"I think exposure is the biggest thing", said Currie about helping the WNBA game grow.

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.

In 2004, she partnered with Lauren Jackson and Finals MVP Betty Lennox for an unexpected Finals win. "She makes your team better".

But they're gone now and only Bird remains. "This wasn't about me". "Look, she's a great player". They trust me; they trusted me from day one. "She's exactly what you want in a point guard and a leader. From there they made it pretty easy". The 6-4 forward was the only player named to the First Team on all 39 ballots in voting by a national panel of sportswriters and broadcasters.

Currie has played in nearly any kind of arena you can imagine over her career, so she understands the value of a true home floor as well. In all four occasions the series ended in Game 3.

Trust me. I've got a full batch of BreakingT shirts in my closet, and they're the best shirts I own. It was a rare show of emotion from a normally reserved Bird, and the 14 points she dropped in the fourth, including four threes, to send the Storm to the Finals set social media ablaze. Stewart is fairly reserved on the court, and her quiet dominance can be taken for granted. She is 28-for-28 this postseason.

Candace Parker, Sparks: An All-WNBA selection for the eighth time, Parker (17.9 ppg, 8.2 rpg, 4.7 apg) was the only player to reach those averages in points, rebounds and assists this season. Which in this case is Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET. Stewart had five, tying her season high. A little over a year ago Stewart opened up about her past, sharing with the world that as a child she had been sexually assaulted by the husband of a relative.

"Oh I would have put a stop to that (crap) real quick", Bird said laughing.

"It doesn't feel real yet, honestly", WNBA Finals MVP Breanna Stewart said after the game.

"We have a lot of good three-point shooters". "And I'm excited that we have a wide open window for the future".
