The Seattle Storm won their second WNBA championship in three years on Tuesday night, routing the Las Vegas Aces 92-59 to complete a three game sweep. Seattle’s combination of forward Breanna Stewart and point guard Sue Bird proved too much for the Aces to handle. Stewart scored 26 points to lead Seattle in game three, averaged 28.3 points and almost eight rebounds a game against Vegas, and was named finals MVP. It was Stewart’s second finals MVP award and the fourth championship for Bird, all with Seattle. A’ja Wilson, the league MVP, tallied 18 points, six rebounds and four assists for the Aces. The loss wrapped up a really good season for the Aces and left the team eager to get back to the finals next season and they know it won’t be easy. Despite not having All-Star center Liz Cambage or guard Kelsey Plum in the lineup all season, the Aces tied with Seattle for the best record in the WNBA and had the number one seed for the playoffs. The Aces also handled playing in the WNBA “bubble” in Bradenton, FL really well. Vegas can look forward to getting Cambage and Plum back next season and will be poised for another run at a championship. Thanks for a great season ladies!
