Seattle dismantles Sun in victory in WNBA Commissioners' Cup 79-57

Seattle- The Storm continues their dominance winning the Commissioner's Cup against the Connecticut Sun.

Prior to the first Inaugural WNBA Commissioners' Cup, there was a little concern that three of the Storm players, who played in Tokyo for the Olympics would be tired and a little out of sync. That was a lie. The Storm jumped out to a double digit lead in the first half with Sue Bird leading the charge.

Bird helped sparked a 28-18 run in the first quarter. Outside of Bird, Breanna Stewart looked like she did not miss a beat. She was making the Sun work. From hitting mid-range shots to attacking her opponents on the baseline, Stewart was taking the heart and soul of Connecticut. Things got a little testy in the third quarter with the Storm turning the ball, but by the end of the third, Seattle had a very comfortable lead. In the fourth, the Storm sprung the game wide open and did not look back.

For the first time ever, Stewart was named MVP for the Commissioner's Cup as she finished with 17 points, 3 assists, and 4 rebounds.
