Maya Moore wins another WNBA Player of the Week award


Lynx forward Maya Moore is making a habit out of collecting Player of the Week awards.

Moore was named the WNBA's Western Conference Player of the Week once again this week. It's the fourth time this season Moore has won the award – all four have come in the last five weeks.

The fifth-year pro once again led the league in scoring, averaging 26.7 points per game. She also ranked third in steals at 1.67 per game, was tied for sixth in rebounds per game at 7.0, was seventh in assists with 4.3 per game and finished eighth in free throw percentage.

The Star Tribune reports she won the award despite a subpar game in Sunday's loss to Washington when the 2014 WNBA MVP finished with just 12 points.

However, earlier in the week she scored 24 second-half points, finishing with 32 while helping to lead the Lynx back from an 11-point halftime deficit against San Antonio.

She then ripped off 36, while helping to lead the Lynx back from a 16-point deficit against Atlanta.

Here are a few of her highlights from the last week.

Moore has led the Lynx to an 18-7 mark on the season, and the team has locked up a playoff spot in the Western Conference.
