The Storm completes their quest and wins their fourth championship in franchise history

Seattle- The Storm sweeps the Aces in Game 3, 92-59.


After climbing out out a nine point deficit early in the first quarter, Seattle stormed right back into the game with shots by Breanna Stewart, Alysha Clark, and Jordin Canada. Seattle was having trouble scoring inside the paint, so they created a lot of their offense off the dribble. With under six minutes left in the second quarter, Stewart was hit with her third foul, which was a huge loss for Seattle in the first half. However, Seattle's defense was superb, as they pressured the Las Vegas Aces into nine turnovers in two quarters. The Storm had a 43-34 lead at the end of the break.


It was a no contest game in the second half, as the Aces had no answer for the Storm's transitional offense. Bird, Jewell Loyd, and Clark was having it their way, as they were hitting wide open shots and shooting around 55% from the field. The Storm built up a 20 point lead in the third quarter and cruised to their fourth championship in franchise history. Seattle had four players that were in double figures.


The Storm makes history with becoming the third team in WNBA history with four championships.
