Maya Moore scored 14, as many as four Lynx appeared on the court at one time and Coach Cheryl Reeve notched a win as the West beat the East 102-98 in the WNBA All-Star game Saturday afternoon.

Los Angeles Sparks state Candace Parker starred by scoring a record 23 points to lead the West to a 102-98 win over the East on Saturday and earn MVP honors in her all-star debut. Minnesota's Maya Moore added 14 and five rebounds.

The Associated Press via WNBA.com reports Reeve had four Minnesota Lynx players on her West squad. Moore and Seimone Augustus were voted as starters. Reeve chose Lynx center Rebekkah Brunson as a replacement in the starting lineup.

Minnesota point guard Lindsay Whalen was the first sub in for the West, reports the AP, putting four Lynx on the floor at once. All four had been on the 2011 all-star team for the West.

The four Lynx stars combined for 24 of the West's 29 points in the first quarter, says the AP, and Brunson added six boards.

The game was coached by two women for the only time in its 11-year history, according to the AP, with Lin Dunn of Indiana coaching the East.

Maya Moore floored the sell-out crowd by breaking out the worm in a pre-game dance-off, the AP reports. She repeated the move when she was introduced as a starter.
