The Seattle Storm clinched their third WNBA championship with a 98-82 win over the Washington Mystics in Fairfax, Virginia Wednesday night.

Elena Delle Donne scored 23 points for the Mystics. In Game 2 they were 0-for-16, though they forced 15 turnovers and were in the game until the end losing 75-73.

"Each (championship) is special in its own way, but this one is probably going to have a different meaning for me", said the 37-year-old point guard who had 10 points and 10 assists.

And Bird became emotional in her interview with Rowe.

In addition to Stewie's impressive stats, forward Natasha Howard hit a career-high 29 points and 14 rebounds. "We're going to be better when we get home, and we're going to knock down shots".

"I know I didn't want her career to end without getting back here". "I'm just so thankful that we were both playing in Russian Federation at the time and that we just met because we connected instantly, and that's been my person that I go to about everything in my life".

The 24-year-old was also named the WNBA Finals MVP on Wednesday following her 30-point performance.

Following Game 3, Stewart was named the victor of the WNBA Finals MVP award, averaging 25.7 points and 6.0 rebounds per game over the series. "Elena [Delle Donne] and Kristi and Ariel Atkins, Tianna Hawkins, they're all top-level, top-10 3-point shooters", Thibault said.

His opening statement noted the free throw difference between Stewart and Delle Donne (14 to 3), and an apparent non-call on Washington's next-to-last possession where Bird knocked the ball from Toliver as she drove the baseline. The pair are joined by Liz Cambage of the Dallas Wings, Diana Taurasi of the Phoenix Mercury and Tiffany Hayes of the Atlanta Dream to round out the team. I didn't know (Toliver's' favorite) beer. Now I can go to the bar and order her everything she needs.

Washington had one last push in the fourth quarter, cutting Seattle's lead to just five points with less than seven minutes left in the game behind a huge 3-point bucket from Tierra Ruffin-Pratt. "Teams are going to have to figure out some ways to match up and have as much fire power as they do because even on the nights that you play pretty good defense, they still - they just have so many weapons to put the ball in the basket". We knew what to do and how to get better.

After Seattle's Game 2 win on Sunday, both teams took separate five-hour flights across the country to Washington, D.C.as the Finals resume with Game 3 on Wednesday night. Each lost Game 3.

"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.

"The WNBA is the best league in the world and to be so successful so soon, obviously a lot of credit goes to my teammates, the coaching staff and Sue (Bird)".

"It doesn't feel real yet, honestly", she said.
