Maya Moore gave the sellout crowd a record-setting performance on Monday night in Minnesota.
Maya Moore drained five three-pointers in the third quarter in the Minnesota Lynx 86-79 win over the Indiana Fever.
This set a new team record and tied the WNBA record for most threes made in one quarter. Diana Taurasi also reached the mark for Phoenix in 2010.
Overall, Moore made six out of eight three-point attempts, and finished with a career-high 29 points. She is currently 11th in the league in scoring, averaging 16.5 points per game.
The Lynx trailed at halftime, but never looked back once Moore took over.
This was the home finale for defending-champion Minnesota, who finished the season with a remarkable 15-1 home record. Overall, they are 26-5, and have clinched home-court throughout the playoffs.
Rather than bench her starters, Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve has vowed to keep all her top players on the court.
