Maya Moore motivated to lead Lynx to WNBA title

Author:

After losing to the Indiana Fevere in the WNBA Finals last season, Lynx star Maya Moore is motivated more than ever to help Minnesota reach the pinnacle of women's basketball again.

"I think we always play like we've got something to prove," Moore tells ESPN.com. "What's done is done, even though the emotions from last year can motivate us this year a little. But we can't worry about what's going on outside of us."

Moore recently returned from playing overseas, where she helped her Shanxi Xing Rui Flame team win a title in China. She averaged an incredible 38.7 points, 12.6 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 3.6 steals per game.

The Lynx are in the middle of training camp, and after forward Rebekkah Brunson reported to the team last week, they are finally at full strength.
