Minnesota Lynx win second WNBA title in three years


Maya Moore and the Minnesota Lynx have swept the Atlanta Dream in the WNBA finals, and have won their second title in the past three years.  It was a 86-77 victory that earned them the trophy at the end of the game.

Moore was named the WNBA Finals MVP, as she put up 23 points, 3 rebounds and 1 assist in Game 3. A more impressive feat, aside from the sweep,was that the Lynx didn’t lose a single game throughout the whole postseason, joining the 2010 Seattle Storm as the only teams to do that.

The title and the MVP nomination is just another addition to Maya Moore’s long list of awards, including two national championships with Connecticut, WNBA Rookie of the Year, as well as two total WNBA Finals championships.

She’s been dominant in the WNBA since arriving three years ago, and I don’t think we’ll stop hearing about her for many more years. After the game, Moore spoke with ESPN about the win and her fans who have shown her immense support,

I have so many people around me that I appreciate and who have helped me so much from middle school to high school. I’m sure there’s some Connecticut faithfuls here, too, but when you think about all the things you want your team to be — we don’t just talk about it. We do it.

Yes you do Maya, yes you do.
