Another month, another award for Minnesota Lynx forward Maya Moore. The WNBA named Moore the Western Conference Player of the Month for August. Amazingly, Moore has now won five of the past six player of the month awards dating back to 2013.

In August Moore placed second in the league in scoring (23.0 ppg). She was fourth in free throw percentage, tied for fourth in blocks, fifth in steals, seventh in rebounding and 10th in assists.

Moore scored 20 or more points in four of the Lynx's seven games during August, including two games where she scored 30 or more. Moore scored 40 points on Aug. 2 against Tulsa. Some of her other highlights from the month include:

  • Aug. 5 at Indiana: 15 points, 12 rebounds, six assists and three steals in 66-64 Lynx win
  • Aug. 7 vs. Chicago: 17 points, five rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in 74-64 Lynx win
  • Aug. 12 vs. Los Angeles: 20 points, seven rebounds, three assists and one steal in loss to Los Angeles 71-63.
  • Aug. 16 vs. Tulsa: 19 points, 12 rebounds, two assists in an 80-63 Lynx win

On Tuesday the WNBA also announced that Moore was a WNBA Peak Performer. Moore along with Courtney Paris of the Tulsa Shock and Diana Taurasi of Phoenix won the awards which go to the league's leaders in scoring, rebounding and assists.

Moore claimed her first scoring title averaging 23.9 ppg, one of the highest averages in league history.

Moore will receive a trophy crafted by Tiffany for her accomplishments.

The Lynx will open the post-season on Thursday night against San Antonio.
