Seattle Storm wins 3rd WNBA championship

Seattle, your basketball team just won another championship.

The Storm took the WNBA title Wednesday night with a 98-82 victory over the Washington Mystics.

A few details:

The Storm swept in three games.

Series MVP Breanna Stewart led with 30 points and eight rebounds.

Natasha Howard added 29 points and 14 rebounds.

Sixteen-year veteran Sue Bird played with a broken nose, blood flowing from under the plastic mask she wore. And she still had 10 points and 10 assists.

Bird has played on all three championship teams. The team's first two titles came in 2004 and 2010.

The Storm will celebrate back home in Seattle at 1 p.m. Sunday. Details to come.
