Moore scores 26 to lead Lynx past Seattle Storm

Author:

Maya Moore scored a game-high 26 points -- 16 of them in the third quarter -- to lead the Minnesota Lynx to a 77-60 win over the Seattle Storm Sunday afternoon at Target Center, the Associated Press reports.

The win is Minnesota's sixth straight victory at home, which is the best record in the WNBA. The Lynx (16-6) have now won five of their last six games.

Moore started out slowly, not scoring at all in the first quarter. But she made up for it with a nine-point run to open the second half and give the Lynx a 41-28 lead, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. She hit a 3-pointer off the second-half tip, stole a pass and drove down the court for a layup, and then hit two jumpers.

After the game, Moore had to hustle over to Target Field to participate in the All-Star celebrity softball game Sunday evening.

Janel McCarville had 13 points and seven rebounds, while Devereaux Peters finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds off the bench.

Camille Little led Seattle (9-14) with 17 points, while Temeka Johnson added 12 for the Storm, who have lost four of their last six games.

Moore leads the WNBA in scoring at 23.7 points per game, and she was the leading vote-getter in balloting for the WNBA All-Star Game, which is coming up on Saturday, July 19 in Phoenix.

The Lynx play one more game before the All-Star break, on Wednesday afternoon against Tulsa at Target Center.
