For Breanna Stewart, winning is a habit.

Fresh off capturing gold in Tokyo, Stewart added another piece of hardware to her trophy case, taking home the Commissioner’s Cup MVP award Thursday night.

As the Storm pointed out on Twitter, that means Stewart has now won five different MVP awards in less than a year, including WNBA Finals MVP, Olympics MVP, and most recently, Commissioner’s Cup MVP.

Stewie put up 17 points in Seattle’s 79-57 Commissioner’s Cup title win over the Sun, shooting 75 percent from the field. Stewart came up clutch on the defensive side of the ball as well, recording four rebounds, four steals and three blocks.

When asked about the Commissioner’s Cup winnings, Stewart says the cash prize was a significant incentive for the squad.

“Yeah, I think our teammates was the motivating factor behind this game. We wanted to win for them. Obviously 30K is 30K for all of us, but for some of them, it’s, I don’t even know what the ratio is for Kiana, but it’s a lot. To really help them get that is amazing.”
