Natasha Howard scored 29 points and collected 14 rebounds, Breanna Stewart, the Finals MVP, tallied 26 points and Alysha Clark had 13 as the Storm, a team that lost in the first round the past two years, beat the Washington Mystics to wrap up their first crown since 2010.
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.
As much as the team may be disappointed with not winning a championship right now, the Mystics did have a successful season.
Stewart will go for a second World Cup gold later this month with the United States senior national team.
"We were celebrating, and I am sure we will continue", she said. Despite that, the basketball legend has been trying her best to help her young teammates prepare for when she's no longer there. This year, she played a starring role.
"We shot the ball extremely well and I don't know if it was our defense or shots just not going in for them", coach Dan Hughes said. "I think anyone in coaching, we always think there is a little more we can do".
"Each (championship) is special in its own way, but this one is probably going to have a different meaning for me", the 37-year-old veteran point guard said. "She has yet to let any of us down".
Seattle Storm forward and league MVP Breanna "Stewie" Stewart hopes to eat and drink all that her "heart desires" in coming days after leading her team to its third WNBA title Wednesday night. "He didn't invite the last WNBA champions", she said. The others are Cynthia Cooper, Sheryl Swoopes, Tamika Catchings, and Brittney Griner.
"Just the fact that she is so versatile", Stewart said. 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.
The Storm completed the three-game sweep of the Mystics in the best-of-five series with a convincing victory in front of a crowd of about 9,000 at the EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia. They forgot about their past, which included seven straight playoffs losses on the road and focused entirely on Game 3.
The two All-Stars on the team, Delle Donne and Toliver, had a cute moment at the podium minutes after their season ended when discussing the budding chemistry the team has had over the past two years when the pieces first came together.
Moore averaged 18.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and a WNBA-leading 1.68 steals during an injury-plagued season for Minnesota as she earned all-WNBA honors for the seventh consecutive season.
