The Seattle Storm roared out to a big first-half lead and were pretty much on cruise control the rest of the way to beat the Washington Mystics 98-82 and capture their third WNBA championship. The best-of-five final series wasn’t close and the Storm won games one and two by double-digits in Seattle and finished off the Mystics with relative ease in game three.
Seattle rolled to a 16-point halftime lead behind 17 points from Natasha Smith and Finals MLV Breanna Stewart. The Mystics were able to get within five in the second half before an 8-0 Seattle run sealed the deal for the Storm. Stewart finished with 30 points, Howard with 29, while veteran Sue Bird ran the offense and chipped in with 10 points and 10 assists. Former league MVP Elena Delle Donne led the Mystics with 23 points in a losing cause.
