Maya Moore scored 30 points, and rookie Rachel Jarry added a career-high 14 to guide the Minnesota Lynx to a 97-74 win over the Seattle Storm Saturday night at Target Center.

The Lynx continued their push for another Western Conference title, reports the Star Tribune, and Moore continued her late-season push for MVP consideration.

Moore finished with 30 points on 12-for-15 shooting. She scored 25 points in the first half. She had a career-high 35 points against Indiana at Target Center a week ago, has now scored 65 points in her last two home games.

The Lynx won their fourth consecutive game and fifth of their past six to improve to a WNBA-best 22-7 with five games remaining in the regular season, says the Pioneer Press. Minnesota holds a one-game lead over Los Angeles for first place in the Western Conference.

The Lynx play host to the Sparks on Wednesday night.

In addition to 14 points from rookie Rachel Jarry, the Lynx notched 16 from Seimone Augustus and 12 points and five assists from point guard Lindsay Whalen.

Tina Thompson led the Storm (15-15) with 18 points.
