"We thought, 'Oh, crap, what kind of year is this going to be?'" Bird reminisced. "One game leads us to what we've been working for for four months, and just having that mindset".
Natasha Howard added a career-high 29 points and 14 rebounds while veteran Sue Bird had 10 points and 10 assists in the win.
The Storm became the sixth team to sweep a Finals in three games - something the team did in 2010. There is plenty of time to break down the season once the sting dulls from Wednesday's 98-82 loss to Seattle in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals. Stewart drained all four of her three-point attempts in the first half to build Seattle's insurmountable lead.
Hughes says credits his willingness to listen to life, and his wife, for taking on the Storm head coach role.
But it was also a coming out party for Stewart, the league MVP, who delivered time and again. "God blessed me with an opportunity to coach her and I will be forever grateful". Seattle landed Jewell Loyd and Stewart, both All-Stars in 2018 with Bird, with the No. 1 overall picks in 2015 and 2016 respectively. "It's probably going to get a little harder from here to be honest, but I think she's ready for it". I knew she was that elite level player and more importantly that elite level competitor that wanted to be the best.
"I'm super proud of this team". "To do it with this group, the way we did it, I don't even know how to react".
"Way at the beginning, I said at the start, I was exhausted of losing", Stewart said.
Elena Delle Donne scored 23 points for the Mystics. "We won this thing". "I packed really lightly", Collier said.
The Mystics were playing in the franchise's first Finals.

Seattle swept the best-of-five series, 3-0. The Mystics joined that unwanted club.
The victory takes the Storm to an unassailable 3-0 lead in the best-of-five WNBA Finals.
Despite the misfires, Washington rallied from down 18 points to trailing 72-67 with 6:49 remaining.
"We don't want to go [back] to Seattle to play", Stewart said.
But Seattle countered with eight consecutive points to pull away and put the game to bed. Two of the league's most improved players were on the Mystics' roster. "It's a shame we couldn't give them one more home game but I feel good about this team going forward and we're a full year ahead of schedule", Coach Thibault said proudly.
