Point guard Natasha Cloud says of the Mystics “We do play our best when we’re under pressure. Everyone steps up.”

Breanna Stewart led the Seattle Storm to their WNBA title Wednesday night, scoring 30 points in a 98-82 victory over the Washington Mystics in Game 3 of the best-of-five series.

The three-time WNBL All-Star with the Perth Lynx is now a WNBA champion after making her American league debut for the Storm at age 28 last season.

Stewart saved her best for last and scored 30 points - a career high for the playoffs - on 11-of-22 shooting, including 4 of 5 three-pointers.

In addition to Stewie's impressive stats, forward Natasha Howard hit a career-high 29 points and 14 rebounds.

WNBA legend Sue Bird, a teammate of Jackson's for Seattle's two previous championships, turned in a double-double with 10 points and 10 assists.

Liverpool legend says Klopp doesn't need to win silverware this season
Liverpool's frontline is arguably the most unsafe in the Premier League right now and they are going to threaten all defences. We are still a young team. "And competition in football is also good for the players".

It was also reported that Mystics star Elena Delle Donne was a guest on the next episode of LeBron's HBO show 'The Shop.' Point guard Kristi Toliver was right behind her, adding 22 points.

In front of the sold-out George Mason EagleBank Arena of 9,164 souls and not Capital One Arena because of a previously scheduled Drake concert, things got off to a great start for the "home" team. In hopes of lighting a fire under his team, head coach Mike Thibault verbally assaulted an official before heading to the locker room for intermission, which earned him a technical foul.

Bird now has her third WNBA 'chip, and her first since 2010.

They have a superstar in Delle Donne and ascending players at most positions.

Choosing not to dwell on the team's third straight loss, or make any excuses as to how it fell on the wrong end of 3-0 WNBA Finals sweep, he was already looking ahead. "I don't know if it was putting us seventh or eighth, I can't remember, and our team took a look at that and said, hell, no".

Indianapolis qualifying canceled, Race time changed due to weather
A pair of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series practices are scheduled for Saturday, with the first session beginning at 10:30 a.m. Indianapolis has been drenched in three days of rain and NASCAR has not been able to get any cars on track.

The coach sensed something brewing early in his first year with the franchise. I didn't know if I'd be playing at this point.

Stewart, Bird and Delle Donne could all join Team USA before they open play at the FIBA Women's World Cup beginning September 22 in Spain. We had some great additions along the way, obviously one sitting to my left.

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. "Now I can go to the bar and order her everything she needs".

"It didn't feel like my first WNBA finals closeout game", the poised Stewart said.

The Storm's 2018 WNBA Championship Parade will take place on Sunday, Sept. 16. "But our perimeter shooting allowed us to create some separation and then we managed the game pretty well". "This isprobably going to be one of the defining moments of my career".

US IDs two Korean War dead from remains handed over by Pyongyang
The identifications will chip away at the 7,699 US troops who the USA military says remain unaccounted for from the Korean War. The condition of some of the remains is decidedly better than that of others.

After trailing 69-53 entering the fourth quarter, the Mystics rallied to within five points at 72-67 on a 3-pointer by Tierra Ruffin-Pratt with 6:49 remaining. If it all sounded a bit mundane a day after the end of the best run in team history, Thibault said: "That's kind of how it goes when you have a good season".
