Stewart, the WNBA's Most Valuable Player this season, added Finals MVP to her resume, which includes four NCAA titles at CT, for which she was named the outstanding player in each of them.
Breanna Stewart led the Storm with 30 points and 8 rebounds in Game 3 of the best-of-5 series.
After scoring 10 points of 4-for-11 shooting in Game 1, Delle Donne - who suffered a bone bruise in her left knee in the semifinals - scored 17 points on 7 of-16 shooting in Game 2 while switching from a brace to a sleeve.
Trump Mocks Light Sentence for Former Campaign Advisor George Papadopoulos
He did not elaborate on the $28 million price tag he cited, though it appeared to be about the cost of Mueller's investigation. "I made a bad mistake for which I paid dearly and I am terribly ashamed", Papadopoulos said at his sentencing hearing.
Elena Delle Donne scored 23 points and Kristi Toliver scored 20 points for the Mystics. Later that night, Washington lost the decisive Game 3 of the Finals at George Mason's Eagle Bank Arena in Fairfax, the team's second different home-away-from-home.
As bedlam burst and champagne poured, Breanna Stewart stood tall inside the cramped, plastic-lined visitor's locker room and allowed herself a smile of gratification.
Typhoon Mangkhut path MAPPED: Where will Super Typhoon make landfall?
Forecasters said Typhoon Mangkhut, considered as the strongest this year, could hit northern Cagayan province on Saturday. Northern parts of Luzon and eventually Hong Kong and Guangdong Province will see major impacts over the coming days.
"There's been a huge transformation with the culture of this team", said Delle Donne, who was acquired by Washington before the 2017 season. Natasha Howard, the best player on the court on Wednesday, added a put-back, and Sami Whitcomb came off the bench to drain a three-pointer. Getting swept by the talented Storm was disappointing but nowhere near catastrophic for a young team that made it to the franchise's first Finals without one of its linchpins, Emma Meesseman, who did not play this season because of burnout. "I packed really lightly", Collier said.
"Just knowing that Game 3 was so important; obviously playing on the road is tough, but we knew we could close out this series and we wanted to do it today", Stewart said. "We're already onto the next thing". The now WNBA champions won the battle of the boards, 39-28, and shot a ridiculous 13-for-26 from beyond the arc. In Game 2, the Mystics missed all 16 of their three-point attempts, any of which would have been the difference in a two-point loss. If we win a championship this week, that will be great.
Check out the brand new t-shirt - which honors the Storm's previous titles and their current roster - below. "Now I can go to the bar, order her everything she needs".

His work has also appeared in Salon, Raw Story, Truthdig, National Memo, Philadelphia Weekly, Democratic Underground, L.A. If I had known who he was, I would have shaken his hand, talked to him, and expressed my sympathy.
"We don't want to go [back] to Seattle to play", Stewart said. "I think that what we did as a team for these past four months, we had a goal and that was to win a championship. 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. "Once we got Stewie and Jewell, we knew we'd get to the other side, but how do you know you're going to get to the other side this fast?" "That's what really separated us again".
