Briana Stewart, Basketball, Briana Taylor discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP Show


Your 2027 sounded on ESPN Storm with a sweep winning the WN BA titled Closing out the action in the wobble and they do it emphatically, 92. 59 33 point victory largest margin of victory in any W N B a playoff game all time ESPN Holly Rowe, I think that the Seattle Storm did this in dominating fashion together. Of course, they have a superstar in Briana Stewart, who had superstar like numbers, but they shared the basketball there. Ball movement was epic. They set finals records in Game one and game. 24 assists. 33 assists in Game two. And, of course, they have the legend Sue Bird, but it was the team basketball.

She's the finals MVP Sue Bird 5.7 assists. He averaged over nine assists per game in the 2020 playoffs Storm with their third win of the Siri's.

Time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk Wireless. No blow outs are blown leads. Neither team ever out in front by double digits in this one, but some confident shots in the second half LeBron James dribbling on top against bio trigger another deep three and makes it again from the same spot. Too long. Threes from on top for LeBron. One was against Duncan Robinson..
