She had just accepted the WNBA Finals MVP trophy, and was still in shock from the 98-82 Game 3 win over the Washington Mystics. But it only tells part of the story.
It was Stewart and Howard who went off tonight.
Bird now has her third WNBA 'chip, and her first since 2010. "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".
"So, I think it just speaks to Stewie". "We knew what we had to do to actually win a title and that's what we did". Case in point: can you imagine planned construction on Capital One Arena during either the National Basketball Association or NHL postseason, forcing the Wizards or Caps to play elsewhere? She's figured it out.
"I don't know if we'd lean one way or another", she said, adding that she's been to the White House several times and that it's "nothing new to me".
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. Seattle landed Jewell Loyd and Stewart, both All-Stars in 2018 with Bird, with the No. 1 overall picks in 2015 and 2016 respectively. "I think that what we did as a team for these past four months, we had a goal and that was to win a championship".
After previously declining to discuss her left knee injury because she did not want to make excuses, the Deleware native opened up about how the ailment affected her play. Stewart was 4-for-5 from behind the arc.
What Stewart has done the seven years since is no surprise to her. It was a rare show of emotion from a normally reserved Bird, and the 14 points she dropped in the fourth, including four threes, to send the Storm to the Finals set social media ablaze.
Finally, Wednesday night, the obstacles - namely a truly deserving Seattle Storm team - became one too many.
That basket put the Storm up by 19 points - their biggest lead of the game - with 28 seconds remaining.
The Storm outscored the Mystics 26-14 in the second quarter to extend their lead to 46-30 at halftime and never looked back.
Stewart and Howard each scored 17 points in the first half as the Storm took a 47-30 lead. Howard and Clark filled in the gaps, as did Crystal Langhorne, Sami Whitcomb and rookie point guard Jordin Canada. They stopped the bleeding and held off the Mystics' final push before pulling away in the closing minutes.
She helped the Storm spark an early run off of extra shot opportunities and offensive rebounds and careless Mystics turnovers also helped Seattle early on. "They're not in the Finals for no reason".
