Last second heroics help The Seattle Storm keep their perfect record at home intact.
Game one of the WNBA Finals tips off at Key Arena Sunday afternoon pitting the Eastern Conference Champion Atlanta Dream against the Western Conference Champion Storm.
League MVP Lauren Jackson proved why she is the MVP, leading all scorers with 26 and pulling down eight rebounds in the win. A WNBA Finals record, 14 of those 26 points, came in the third quarter. With a six point lead entering the final quarter, the Dream continued to stay alive.
Atlanta tied it up at 77-77 with 20 seconds on the clock.
Storm had the ball, and to no surprise, Sue Bird came through in the clutch once again. Bird knocked down a jumper just inside the top of the arc with 2.6 seconds on the clock.
Atlanta had one last shot. Angel McCoughtry's long three bounced off the far side of the rim.
Game two in the best of five series is Tuesday night at Key Arena. The series moves to Atlanta for game three Thursday night.
