Minnesota Lynx forward Maya Moore has been named the WNBA’s Western Conference Player of the Week for the second time this season.
Maya Moore scored 16 of her game-high 26 points in the third quarter Sunday to lead the Minnesota Lynx to a 77-60 victory over the Seattle Storm. Janel McCarville scored 13 points while Devereaux Peters added 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Lynx (16-6), who won their third straight and have the best home record in the league at 9-1.
Maya Moore scored 33 points and Lindsay Whalen fell a rebound short of a triple double to help the Minnesota Lynx maintain their road dominance against the Tulsa Shock with a 91-85 victory Thursday night.
It’s all starting to click for Tina Charles and the New York Liberty. Charles scored a career-high 32 points to lead the Liberty to an 87-80 win over Maya Moore and the defending champion Minnesota Lynx on Sunday. “We’re starting to play better and I’m being more aggressive doing what my team needs,” said Charles, who had 28 points in the Liberty’s previous game.
The Minnesota Lynx hope they are starting to peak. Playing well as team has to do with knowing each other well, and Janelle McCarville has shown she knows her teammates strengths and how to highlight them. Now in her second season and second time through Minnesota, she can be the subtle difference the Lynx need to stay ahead.
Lindsay Whalen scored 22 points to lead the Minnesota Lynx to a 91-84 victory over the San Antonio Stars on Thursday night. Maya Moore added 21 points and six rebounds for the Lynx, who have won four of their last five. Six Stars scored in double figures, led by rookie Kayla McBride with 17.
With her team missing one its big scorers, Janel McCarville took charge for the Minnesota Lynx. McCarville had a season-high 22 points and the short-handed Lynx beat the Seattle Storm 74-69 Sunday night. Maya Moore added 14 points for the Lynx (12-5), who have won three of four. Devereaux Peters had 12 points and Lindsay Whalen scored 10.
Lynx guard Seimone Augustus will miss Minnesota’s game Sunday against the Seattle Storm due to bursitis in her left knee. Augustus is the team’s second-leading scorer at 17.2 points per game and has been playing through pain for the past few weeks. The injury caused her to miss the June 18 game in Phoenix.
Maya Moore had 20 points and 10 rebounds, leading the Minnesota Lynx to a 75-65 victory over the Washington Mystics on Friday night.
Brittney Griner set career highs with 27 points and 18 rebounds to lead the Phoenix Mercury to a 92-79 win over the Minnesota Lynx on Wednesday night.
U.S. wildlife officials revealed Monday that they expect to complete a recovery plan for imperiled Canada lynx in early 2018 — almost two decades after the snow-loving wild cats first received federal protections.
The Seattle Storm finally found a way to finish a game — and in the process, finished off Minnesota’s season-opening win streak. Tanisha Wright scored 13 points, including a pair of free throws with 10.3 seconds left, and the Storm hung on to hand the Lynx their first loss of the season Friday night, 65-62.
Maya Moore had 26 points and had nine rebounds and the Minnesota Lynx beat the San Antonio Stars 88-72 on Friday night to improve to 6-0.
