Basketball: Seattle sweeps Atlanta to win WNBA title

By Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — The Seattle Storm made a sweeping claim to be considered one of the top teams in WNBA history.

Even if the Atlanta Dream were difficult to convince.

Seattle, which matched the league record for regular-season wins, completed the WNBA's first undefeated postseason in eight years, beating the Dream 87-84 on Thursday night for a three-game sweep of the finals.

"I don't know if I'll ever be part of a team that's been as good or be at the end of a season and feel like I wish it would all start again because it's been so much fun," said Lauren Jackson, who swept the regular-season and WNBA finals MVP awards.

Atlanta, a third-year expansion franchise, was difficult to put away. The Storm won the three games by a total of eight points and won Game 3 only after the Dream missed two 3-pointers in the final 6 seconds.

The Storm became the first team to win the championship without a postseason loss since the Los Angeles Sparks went 6-0 in 2002, when the finals were a best-of-three series.

"I know we swept, but it was not easy at any point," said Seattle guard Sue Bird, who had 14 points and seven assists.
