Sue Bird and Storm Take 2-0 Lead over Las Vegas in WNBA Finals

The Seattle Storm are just one win away from their 2nd title in 3 years and 4th champion in franchise history.

The Storm bestedthe Las Vegas Aces 104-91 behind 22 points, 5 assists, and 4 rebounds from Breanna Taylor and 10 assists and 16 points by Sue Bird.

Natasha Howard and Alysha Clark both broken in 22 points in a well balanced attack for the Storm.

Seattle put together a record 33 assists and shot over 55 percent as a group, which ended up being excessive for the Aces to overcome.

Once again the 39-year-old guard Sue Bird, who has belonged to all of Seattles titles in 2004, 2010, and 2018, showed up substantial for the group. Two days after setting a WNBA playoff and final record 16 helps, she gave double-digit helps again to help the Storm take a 2-0 lead.
