Breanna Stewart and the Seattle Storm never really got a chance to defend their 2018 championship because of key injuries.
If the team can stay healthy next year, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Storm contend for a third championship in four years and become the first team to win consecutive titles since the 2001-02 Los Angeles Sparks.
BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Breanna Stewart and Sue Bird helped Seattle finish off a dominant season with another championship.
The dynamic duo powered the Storm to their second title in three seasons. They both missed last year with injuries.
Stewart scored 26 points and Seattle completed a sweep of the Las Vegas Aces with a 92-59 rout Tuesday night. It was the biggest margin of victory in WNBA Finals history.
Sue Bird has seen a lot in her storied playing career in the WNBA, overseas and the Olympics. While nothing the 39-year-old Seattle Storm guard experienced has prepared her for life in the WNBA bubble, she is making the best of the situation.
The WNBA put all 12 of its teams at a single site — the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida — in hopes of playing the full 22-game season amid the coronavirus pandemic.
