Maya Moore Scores 24 in 22 Minutes, Hits Game-Winning 3 in GM3 of the WNBA Finals
The Linyx are just 1 win away from a WNBA championship after 2014 MVP Maya Moore scored 24 points (in 22 minutes) and hit the game-winning 3-pointer in Game 3 vs the Fever.
“That was pretty, pretty close to not making it,” said Moore who was 4 of 7 from 3. “[But] 1.7 is a lot of time. I’m a basketball junkie. I’ve been playing almost my whole life, so those situations you see so often … everything kind of fell into line. I did what I could. I can’t say I’ve completely masterminded the whole situation. It was just a basketball move, and I was able to get it off.”
“I knew when she caught it, I had a feeling she’d put the ball in,” said Lynx guard Lindsay Whalen. “The poise she had on that play was just really unbelievable. She gave a little fake, got to her spot, knew the time she had, and it was awesome. It was a great shot, and that’s what great players do.”
Game 4 is on Sunday and if the Lynx win, it will be their third title in five years.
