Breanna Stewart, Elena Delle Donne among All-WNBA first-team selections
13 September, 2018, 23:26
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.
They were not satisfied with just being there and wanted to win a championship, but they were simply overpowered by the Seattle Storm throughout the series. The Mystics were 0-for-16 on 3-pointers in a 75-73 loss in Seattle in Game 2.
In two games they're shooting a combined 3-37 - that's just EIGHT percent.
The location, George Mason University, marked the third arena Washington has called home this season and the second in the playoffs.
Liz Cambage, Wings: In her first WNBA season since 2013, the Australian center led the league in scoring (23.0 ppg) and ranked second in rebounding (9.7 rpg). She was carried to the locker room and did not return.
What Stewart has done the seven years since is no surprise to her. In 2015, as she's spoken about often through this title run, she was an unrestricted free agent and had given a lot of thought into leaving Seattle. All the best to the 32-year old.
Despite the misfires, Washington rallied from down 18 points to trailing 72-67 with 6:49 remaining. Unfortunately for the home team, Seattle immediately responded with an 8-0 run and coasted the rest of the way.
Howard was the unexpected star of Game 3, who finished with 29 points and a game-high 14 rebounds. The now WNBA champions won the battle of the boards, 39-28, and shot a ridiculous 13-for-26 from beyond the arc.
"I have seen her with the national team this last Olympics", Team USA assistant coach Jennifer Rizzotti said. "Their experience showed in this playoff series". Elena Delle Donne is ready for another offensive clinic, Toliver will hit shots and Atkins will do what Atkins does, which is everything.
But this one felt much different. The chance to come back in 2018 with a championship-caliber team was something Hughes couldn't pass up. Our team went through a rebuild and yes, I chose to stay.
"Honestly, I don't know", she said inside Sea-Tac Airport Thursday morning. But we can't take our foot off the pedal. We have a relatively young team. "They are going to play that way offensively, they're going to play that way defensively. Once we got Stewie and Jewell, we knew we'd get to the other side, but how do you know you're going to get to the other side this fast?" "We don't feel like we peaked and this is it for us", Delle Donne said. "This is a great arena, could be electric in here if we fill it up".
The Storm got their first taste of life without Bird in the semifinals when she broke her nose and had to sit out the remainder of Game 4 against Phoenix.
The season has not only been her most successful, but her most transformational. I have to be honest with you, on the plane I was reflecting on that. "We rely on that, and we didn't make them tonight". When he was coach in San Antonio, Hughes always hoped he might get to mentor Howard, who starred collegiately at Florida State and then was drafted No. 5 by in in 2014. "And so we will".
EDD: "Yeah, there's been a huge transformation in the culture of this team".
Howard was a deep reserve for Minnesota during the Lynx's title run past year, averaging 1.1 points and 0.9 points. "God blessed me with an opportunity to coach her and I will be forever grateful". "Now I can go to the bar, order her everything she needs". "I need to wash things really often". "I think everybody knows". They still can't guard you. "I like to push off one leg in floaters, step-backs, all that off my left leg". Wrigley writes her messages on Instagram all the time.
"This is probably going to be one of the most defining moments of my career", Bird said.
