Another day, another award for Minnesota Lynx forward Maya Moore. A special month of July has left Moore with nearly as much hardware as she had during her 2014 WNBA MVP season.

Just one day after winning her third straight WNBA Western Conference Player of the Week award, Moore was named the WNBA's Western Conference Player of the Month for July.

It's the sixth time in her career Moore has been named the WNBA Player of the Month. She won the award twice in 2013 and three times last year.

Moore ranked first among West players in scoring (25.8 ppg) and tied for the top spot in rebounding (8.8 rpg). She was also third in three-point field goal percentage, knocking down 26-of-62 from behind the arc.

Moore set the tone right away when she opened July with back-to-back double-doubles. She scored 23 points and 11 rebounds against Seattle on July 3, then followed that with 29 points and 10 boards against Chicago.

FOX Sports North notes that Moore has scored 20 points in each of her last 11 games – setting the franchise record and tying Cynthia Cooper for the second-longest such streak in league history.

According to the Star Tribune, Diana Taurasi holds the league record with 13 straight games of 20 or more points.

Moore's July even included a WNBA All-Star Game MVP award, after setting an all-star game record by scoring 30 points.
