Australian Opal-in-waiting Sami Whitcomb has come off the bench to help the Seattle Storm clinch the WNBA title.

The victory catapulted the Storm to an unassailable 3-0 lead and series sweep in the best-of-five WNBA Finals.

Despite being on the brink of elimination in their first WNBA Finals appearance in franchise history, the Mystics remained cool and collected on the eve of Game 3.

Elena Delle Donne scored 23 points, and Kristi Toliver had 22 for the Mystics, who were appearing in the WNBA Finals for the first time in franchise history. "So hopefully everybody goes off to wherever they're going this offseason but continues to improve, get better, and then come back and regroup and build off of this season". "We're poised to get better".

"I'm sure he's going to say we're not invited anyway".

Home has been an evolving term for the Mystics of late. With that facility no longer an option, they'll be hosting the Storm at EagleBank Arena on the George Mason campus in Fairfax, Va.

Stewart was expected to lift a once-proud franchise from the doldrums and deliver a championship, but her first two years in the WNBA ended with disappointing first-round playoff exits on teams that were the No. 8 seed.

Stewart was unanimously selected to the All-WNBA First Team on Wednesday, the league announced at halftime of the game, the only player in the WNBA to be named on all 39 ballots.

Breanna Stewart scored 30 points and took home the finals MVP award as the Seattle Storm claimed their third WNBA title with a 98-82 win over the Washington Mystics on Wednesday, September 12.

Aside from a narrow 75-73 win in Game 2, the Storm thoroughly dominated Washington in a lopsided series that began with a blowout 89-76 win in Game 1.

If this were the National Basketball Association, the Washington Mystics' front office might be making calls to players of Paul George's or Kawhi Leonard's caliber right now. "We're one of the best 3-point shooting teams in the league. To see them here now is not surprising at all, and we definitely appreciate it".

Both teams rely heavily on the 3-point shot. She did work inside, finishing post moves and getting to the basket for lay-ups; she did work in the mid-range, knocking down pull up jumpers as part of Seattle's offensive flow; and she knocked down her first four 3-pointers, finishing the day 4-of-5 from beyond the arc as she was able to stretch the Washington defense.

Alysha Clark finished with 15 points and nine rebounds for the Storm, and veteran Sue Bird finished with 10 points and 10 assists. Bird dabbed away the blood and went right back out to steady the Storm through Washington's fourth-quarter rally.

In her MVP summer, Stewart ranked second in the league in scoring (21.8), third in rebounding (8.4), seventh in blocked shots (1.44), and eighth in steals (1.35) during the regular season.
