Jewell scores 23, Storm beat Mystics 89-76 in Game 1
Published in The Egyptian Gazette on 08 - 09 - 2018

SEATTLE, Sept 8, 2018 (News Wires) - Jewell Loyd was unselfish in the deciding game of the WNBA semi-finals, giving up her spot on the floor and choosing not to mess with what was going right for the Seattle Storm at the time.
Her decision appeared to be rewarded in Game 1 of the Finals.
"It's amazing how many times when you're thinking right like she (is), and you're unselfish like she was in Game 5, how you are rewarded the next time," Seattle coach Dan Hughes said.
Loyd made 9 of 12 shots and scored 23 points, league MVP Breanna Stewart added 20 points, and the Storm opened the Finals with an 89-76 victory over the Washington Mystics on Friday night.
The first WNBA Finals game in Seattle in eight years was a dominant performance by the home team, led by the guard who watched most of the fourth quarter of Seattle's Game 5 win over Phoenix in the semifinals. Loyd made the suggestion to Hughes not to change Seattle's lineup during that fourth quarter against Phoenix which meant she stayed on the bench.
And instead of sulking about her struggles for most of the semifinal series, Loyd became the leader of an efficient offensive performance from the top team in the league during the regular season.
"It helps when you're playing with people who are unselfish and set you up and keep giving you the ball. That's what makes this team special. Everyone is willing to make that extra pass regardless if you miss 100 shots and make the next 70, this team is going to give you the ball."
