Storm sweep Mystics, win third WNBA title

I'm a very left-footed player.

The Mystics have every reason to be optimistic for next season, and that's beyond the fact they'll have a new home at the St. Elizabeths East Entertainment and Sports Arena in Southeast D.C. Atkins will begin the season with a year of experience under her belt.

That construction schedule manifested in an unplanned postseason barnstorming of our local Atlantic 10 basketball arenas.

So what is the connection between the 2018 WNBA Champion Seattle Storm and Mountlake Terrace? During that 10-minute frame, the home team shot just 26.3 percent (5-for-19) from the field to only manage 14 points in the quarter. A near-capacity crowd packed in and lifted the mood into a frenzy early.

The rise of the Mystics has been a six-year process under the watchful eye of head coach Mike Thibault, who swears it hasn't been as easy as they have made it look the past two summers. Our team has handled it.

"They definitely supported us during the see the turnout at the playoffs, it was huge for us", Bird said.

Sue Bird, Breanna Stewart and Jewell Loyd were the main pieces in the Seattle Storm's march to the 2018 WNBA Championship. Instead, she smiled, hugged her point guard and celebrated with her teammates before being named Finals MVP, taking team photos and heading to the locker room for some champagne. It really is. It all feels so surreal. "I mean, we're the champs". We can build on this. The great thing is we can still improve. "But it won't be the end of the world if we don't".

They may have approached Sergei Skripal's house by chance, but did not know where it was located, they said. Simonyan said during the interview that the two men called her cellphone, asking to tell their story.

Wednesday night was no different. We have a relatively young team. Too many offensive rebounds (13) led to too many second- and third- chance opportunities.

Stewart had stewed during her first two Storm seasons, unwilling to accept mediocrity after such a storied collegiate and Olympic career. This has been an outstanding season for this team and without a doubt, their best season in franchise history.

"Honestly, it didn't feel like my first WNBA Finals closeout". Because whether or not non-fans have been paying attention, the WNBA has gotten really, really competitive. There is no doubt in the back of my mind that the Washington Mystics will be back next year contending for a championship and now that rookies like Ariel Atkins have playoff experience, the Mystics now know what it takes to get back to the promise land.

Part of that is simple recognition. "But our perimeter shooting allowed us to create some separation and then we managed the game pretty well".

"That's the Stewie I remember", Auriemma said. It was filled with almost 10,000 fans who provided an atmosphere worthy of a Finals game. A lot of times when I invite people out and they come to a game, they fall in love with the game.

In Game 1, Washington had no shot as Seattle asserted their dominance. And when you know what can go wrong, you kind of overthink it.

Howard was a deep reserve for Minnesota during the Lynx's title run a year ago, averaging 1.1 points and 0.9 points.
