Not long after winning her second WNBA title in three seasons, Maya Moore knew she could be even better. This season, a lighter, leaner version of the perennial MVP candidate is leading the league in scoring.
It's like little Ralphie from "A Christmas Story." Everyone sets out for an A grade. But with just three teams boasting winning records at the All-Star break, most teams scored far below their expectations.
Maya Moore scored 33 points and Lindsay Whalen fell a rebound short of a triple double to help the Minnesota Lynx maintain their road dominance against the Tulsa Shock with a 91-85 victory Thursday night.
Tina Charles scored a career-high 32 points to lead the New York Liberty to an 87-80 win over Maya Moore and the Minnesota Lynx on Sunday. Charles, who had 28 points in the Liberty's previous game, also had 10 rebounds.
