"I think that series, looking back on Phoenix, it's something that we really learned from", Stewart said. Seattle's other title came in 2004.
"We understand that we have to take care of the ball", Bird said. "When you're on the other side of it, you try to slow her down and obviously, we didn't get that done". "And to do it with this group, the way we did it, I don't even know how to react to be honest".
"We'd like to have taken that one last step, but the window for us is open right now", coach Mike Thibault said.
