Lynx 80

Fever 77

The Minnesota Lynx took a 2-1 series lead with an 80-77 victory in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals.

1. Moore makes the most of her minutes

Maya Moore's minutes were limited due to foul trouble, but that didn't slow her down. In her 22 minutes on the court Moore led the way for Minnesota with 24 points and won the game with a buzzer beater.

2. Everything was falling

It was the type of basketball game you'd expect to see in the WNBA Finals. Two great teams hitting a lot of tough shots as they were battling it out.

  • Indiana was 30-of-60 from the floor 50 percent and 8-of-17 from the three-point line.
  • The Lynx were 32-of-62 and 7-of-13 from behind the arc.

3. Teammates step up

With Moore on the bench in foul trouble in the third quarter Minnesota stepped up to re-take the lead without her. They did that by outscoring the Fever 19-13 after Moore left.
