What was billed as a battle between two of the league's most lethal three-point shooting teams turned into a one-sided display for the Storm.
Check out the brand new t-shirt - which honors the Storm's previous titles and their current roster - below. I didn't know (Toliver's' favorite) beer.
Despite losing in their first Finals appearance in the team's 21-year history, Thibault and the Mystics know that the 9,000-plus fans who traveled 20 miles outside of Washington, D.C., and piled into Eagle Bank Arena know their team, for the first time in nearly a decade, has a bright future. There is no doubt in the back of my mind that the Washington Mystics will be back next year contending for a championship and now that rookies like Ariel Atkins have playoff experience, the Mystics now know what it takes to get back to the promise land. "We knew what we had to do to actually win a title and that's what we did". That's a pretty important thing to know about Panda. A young Seattle team that lost in the first round the past two years and won just 15 games last season, obliterated Washington for its first crown since 2010. "Now I can go to the bar and order her everything she needs".
Mallya Extradition Case: Congress All Guns Blazing Against Jaitley
He said Mallya's claim is a vindication of the Congress's stand that the government always knew about the fleeing defaulters. I said I want to settle with the banks and would he please facilitate these discussions.
Since changing to a best-of-five format for the Finals in 2005, no WNBA team has gone down 2-0 and recovered to force a Game 5. They forget about their past, which included seven straight playoff losses on the road and focused entirely on Game 3. Poor perimeter shooting contributed.
Despite the misfires, Washington rallied from down 18 points to trailing 72-67 with 6:49 remaining. It took a 14-point fourth-quarter performance from a facemask-adorning Bird in Game 5 to ensure the Storm weren't on the wrong side of the record books. Stewart dropped 17 points in the first half, too, going a ideal 4-of-4 from behind the arc.
Nun seeks justice from Vatican; accused Bishop says charges concocted
The Kerala nun , who has accused Bishop of Jalandhar of raping her multiple times, has written to The Vatican seeking justice . Reportedly, Catholic reformation organizations also joined the protest which had been called by the Joint Christian Council.
The legendary University of CT women's basketball coach sat next to his long-time assistant Chris Daley watching the most decorated player they'd ever coach do what she always does - dominate and win. "I, unfortunately, wasn't able to practice a lot in the moments that we had off, so I was kind of trying to figure out my go-to moves as games were going on and just trying to get comfortable finding different ways".
For Bird, the season was proof that she made the right decision a few years back when her contract was nearing its end. Obviously D.C.is a great team, and what they have going is going to be exciting for them in the future. "It's a shame we couldn't give them one more home game but I feel good about this team going forward and we're a full year ahead of schedule", Coach Thibault said proudly.
"We can really create something here, and I think we've really grown this fan base", said Delle Donne.
