  • Storm President Alisha Valavanis grabs Sami Whitcomb who came off the bendh to give Seattle the spark that led to a Game 5 win over Phoenix

But Seattle chipped away, pulled even late in the third quarter and eventually taking its first lead on Jordin Canada's 3-pointer with 8:20 remaining to go ahead 66-63. Not while she was playing in Europe.

"I don't know that I've had a fourth quarter like this in a big game in my life, to be honest", Bird said after the game. "It comes down to making a couple of plays at the end of the game and we did that today". The Storm started poorly and trailed by seven points during the first quarter despite having home court advantage.

"Probably one of the best little stints of basketball I've seen her play".

Bird, now with a broken nose for the fifth time in her professional career, intends to play in Game 5, which Taurasi fully expects. "She can probably do that more often".

"I've had the pleasure of coaching her this year", first-year Storm coach Dan Hughes said. She always wants to get everyone else involved. "An incredible performance by her". That's routine Sue to me but incredible, really. Stewart passed to the corner as time expired so the Mercury averted the risk of a second overtime game in the series (Seattle won Game 2, 91-87 in OT). Phoenix was 8 of 28 on 3-pointers but four of those came in the first 4 minutes of the game. She scored 11 points, had four assists, one block and three rebounds from 21 minutes.

But Whitcomb started the second quarter brilliantly, scoring five points in the first 90 seconds to drag Seattle to within striking distance.

Stewart also spent part of the night contending with Griner, whose dominant post play forced the Storm to double-team her throughout the game.

The Seattle veteran guard then scored 14 points on 5 for 6 shooting to punch her team's ticket to face the Washington Mystics in the Finals, which begin on Friday.
