Game recognize game. LeBron James is the world's most famous basketball fan and he took notice of the huge Game 3 of the WNBA Finals on Wednesday night as the Seattle Storm won the championship with a 98-82 victory over the Washington Mystics.

But two games into this best of five, Seattle holds a 2-0 lead with the series shifting back east.

James, of course, knows how it is to be on the other end of a championship loss and wanted to recognize the Mystics for their season.

Whitcomb was again a factor off the bench with six points, and Jewell Loyd, despite an off-shooting night (2-for-11, 0-for-3 on threes) still found a way to contribute with six assists and four rebounds.

Diana Taurasi, Mercury: The WNBA's all-time points leader tied for third in the league in scoring with 20.7 points per game, her highest average since 2011.

La Fiscalía capitalina se ha limitado a señalar en su cuenta de Twitter que investiga las causas del ataque, sin ofrecer detalles. Policías capitalinos y paramédicos arribaron a la plaza, que fue evacuada y en donde se hallaron unos 25 casquillos percutidos.

And Bird became emotional in her interview with Rowe.

Natasha Howard added career-high 29 points and 14 rebounds for the Storm and first-year coach Dan Hughes. "They've just said, 'OK, whatever you put in front of us, we'll deal with it'". "We went through that and now I think we'll handle it much better". The club's first-ever trip to the WNBA Finals is even more impressive considering how much better the league is in 2018. "Elena [Delle Donne] and Kristi and Ariel Atkins, Tianna Hawkins, they're all top-level, top-10 3-point shooters", Thibault said.

"We understand that the difference here is we have a chance to win a championship and not just advance to the next round", Bird said. "So we ran into each other in the lounge, and obviously we knew each other before that, but not that well". Elena Delle Donne is ready for another offensive clinic, Toliver will hit shots and Atkins will do what Atkins does, which is everything. I didn't know (Toliver's' favorite) beer.

As Sue Bird was exiting at one end of the court, Mystics coach Mike Thibault jogged over to her from the end of the court to catch up with her before she left. "I turned to my wife, and her first words were, 'You gotta do this'".

As did numerous players who represent those teams, such as Seahawks stars Earl Thomas, Russell Wilson and Frank Clark. Everyone has to have an "I love you off the court, but I'm going to kill you on the court" type of mentality.

Some two dozen dioceses participated in the study, commissioned by the Catholic Church bishops' conference in Germany. Cardinal Wuerl was named in the report and accused of protecting those priests while he was a bishop in Pittsburgh.

Since changing to a best-of-five format for the Finals in 2005, no WNBA team has gone down 2-0 and recovered to force a Game 5.

Those friendly jokes and hugs may turn into tough fouls and trash talk during the game, but once the final buzzer sounds, the switch is flipped back to friendship mode. "It came down to a stop, and I thought we really did a good job". "It was how we countered that when things got close".

This is likely just the beginning for the dynamic 24-year-old forward, who won the NCAA Championship during each of her four seasons at the University of CT. One of the league's most decorated players also grasps the impact of her latest triumph.

"It doesn't feel real yet, honestly", she said.

He then asks, "So, am I allowed to flirt with you?" to which Thompson replies, "Um, we'll see, a little bit". He then caresses her shoulder as they sit side-by-side in front of her laptop computer.
