Seattle Storm winning coach ‘motivates by love’

Sue Bird and the Seattle Storm are on the verge of a third WNBA title

Stewart, who just finished her third year in the WNBA, led a strong front court effort as the Storm started to build up a lead late in the first quarter. "I thought we're going to win and then we didn't".

The Mystics, on the other hand, didn't have a single player score in double figures, and only had two points off the bench. "What I was pleased with was that we realized at halftime that we've got to kind of back out and re-establish some things".

Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi was voted to the All-WNBA First Team for the 10th time, extending her WNBA record for First Team selections. "I turned to my wife, and her first words were, 'You gotta do this'".

As if to drive the point home, that the Mystics' wander through the postseason desert had reached its nadir, Sue Bird poked her head out from the locker room after morning shoot-around in her green and yellow warmups, perfectly matching the paint and seats of Eagle Bank Arena.

Ok, maybe not to that extreme, but I do think shots will fall. Natasha Howard and Alysha Clark played key roles, too, in a commanding 3-0 series sweep over the Washington Mystics.

But Stewart has scored 22 and 25 points in Games 1 and 2 of the Finals, respectively, and Seattle has outrebounded Washington 68-59 during the series. Despite that, the basketball legend has been trying her best to help her young teammates prepare for when she's no longer there. "Like numerous girls on this team, I grew up idolizing Sue Bird and playing with her is still a little bit surreal". In Game 2 they were 0-for-16, though they forced 15 turnovers and were in the game until the end losing 75-73. "God blessed me with an opportunity to coach her and I will be forever grateful".

After scoring 10 points of 4-for-11 shooting in Game 1, Delle Donne - who suffered a bone bruise in her left knee in the semifinals - scored 17 points on 7 of-16 shooting in Game 2 while switching from a brace to a sleeve. In order for the Mystics to win it all, they'd have to win three straight games, something that has never been done before in a best-of-five finals.

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.

"On the court, off the court, honestly, Sue is at the center of why we're here, again, " the Storm's president and general manager, Alisha Valavanis, told ESPN's Holly Rowe as the Storm received a new trophy to add to the bulging case.

Once, twice, three times a champion!

Stewart had 30 points, and Howard, who had been a bit player in Minnesota last year when the Lynx won the title, was a monumental contributor all year in Seattle after her acquisition in a trade. "I'm going to need a lot tonight". "All year you could just see the escalation". Bird dabbed away the blood and went right back out to steady the Storm through Washington's fourth-quarter rally. That followed a 3-for-21 performance in Game 1.

At least until the next game.

Wednesday night was no different.
