The Seattle Storm are headed back to the WNBA Finals for the second time in three years. The overwhelming favorites heading into the season, the Storm swept the Minnesota Lynx 3-0 in the semis, with Breanna Stewart’s career-playoff-high 31 points in the closing game helping to seal the deal.

Here are the moments that defined the series:

 

GAME 1: JEWELL LOYD AND BREANNA STEWART CARRY THE STORM, COMBINING FOR 46 PTS
BUT IT’S AYESHA CLARK’S BUZZER-BEATING PUTBACK THAT CLINCHES THE GAME

 

LET’S SEE THAT ONE AGAIN

 

IT MAY HAVE COME IN A LOSS, BUT NAPHEESA COLLIER’S BACK-TO-BACK-TO-BACK BLOCKS OF STEWIE REMINDED EVERYONE SHE’S A STAR ON BOTH ENDS OF THE COURT

 

GAME 2: PRIOR TO TIPOFF, COLLIER READS A STATEMENT IN SUPPORT OF BREONNA TAYLOR’S FAMILY AFTER A KENTUCKY GRAND JURY FAILS TO CHARGE THE POLICE FOR KILLING HER

 

ON THE COURT, THE GOLD MAMBA STAYS HOT AS THE STORM CRUISE TO A 2-0 SERIES LEAD

 

ALL THE WHILE FLEXING THEIR LEAGUE-BEST DEPTH

 

GAME 3: BREANNA STEWART GOES FOR A PLAYOFF CAREER-HIGH OF 31 PTS AS THE STORM COMPLETE THE SWEEP

 

THE AGELESS-WONDER SUE BIRD ADDS 16 AND 9 OF HER OWN IN THE WIN

 

ALL WHILE IMPRESSING A FORMER COLLEGE TEAMMATE

 

THE STORM ARE NOW HEADED TO THE 2020 WNBA FINALS. GAME 1 IS FRIDAY
