The Storm celebrate their 2020 WNBA Finals win with a dominating Game 3 victory over the Las Vegas Aces. (0:51)

The Seattle Storm are the 2020 WNBA champions.

Breanna Stewart scored 26 points as Seattle swept the Las Vegas Aces with a 92-59 rout in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals. The 33-point margin of victory is the largest in a WNBA postseason game.

Stewart was the unanimous WNBA Finals MVP, winning her second title in her first season back from an Achilles injury that forced her to miss all of the 2019 season.

Sue Bird won her fourth WNBA title, all with Seattle. She also was the starting point guard for the Storm's championships in 2004, '10 and '18.

Seattle is the first team to complete three sweeps in the WNBA Finals. Per Elias Sports Bureau, the Storm, who were the No. 2 seed but season-long favorite this season, are the sixth team in WNBA history to go undefeated in a single postseason (6-0), joining the 2013 Minnesota Lynx (7-0), 2010 Storm (7-0), 2002 Los Angeles Sparks (6-0), 2000 Houston Comets (6-0) and 1997 Comets (2-0).
