Maya Moore sparks Minnesota Lynx to Game 2 victory - Oct 12, 2016

Maya Moore
Maya Moore (6'0''-SG-89, college: Connecticut) shouted for joy and pumped her fist. It was still the second quarter, and the Minnesota Lynx had a lot of work to do before they could put away Game 2 of the WNBA Finals, but it was clear that Moore was locked in - bad news for the Los Angeles Sparks. Moore, the league's all-time leading scorer in the Finals, turned in a fiery 21-point, 12-rebound performance to push the Lynx past the Sparks 79-60 Tuesday at Target Center. Minnesota, which lost Game 1 Sunday on a buzzer-beater, evened the best-of-five series 1-1. Game 3 is Friday in Los Angeles, where the Lynx went 2-0 during the regular season. Moore was held scoreless in the first half of the series opener. She finished with 18 points but ended the game holding her head in both hands after Alana Beard (6'1''-G/F-82, college: Duke) hit the game-winning shot over her. Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said as she watched film of Game 1 into the early hours Monday, she was surprised to see a lack of aggressiveness from her players, particularly Moore, who appeared to be 'feeling out the game' and 'flat-footed' at times. That wasn't the case for most of Game 2. Moore attacked the basket almost every time she touched the ball and was a whirlwind on defense, with 11 of her rebounds on that end of the floor, plus two steals and a blocked shot. 'Everybody asked me how I thought Maya was going to respond from Game 1,' Reeve said. 'Well, if I know Maya, she hasn't slept and Maya probably wanted to play yesterday, get right back to it. She gave us a big lift with her focus, her intensity. I think Maya had a lot of fun today.' Moore admitted that she didn't get much rest Sunday night. 'Yeah, there's only so many things you can do to take your mind off a loss like that,' Moore said. 'So falling asleep was pretty hard, but thankfully I didn't have any nightmares. 'Our team bounces back really well, you can't stay down for too long on this team, and I'm a part of that, just wanting to come in and bring more energy this game, and it was contagious for me and for other players.' Lynx center Sylvia Fowles (6'6''-C-85, college: LSU) matched Moore's intensity, pulling in 15 rebounds with 13 points, and Seimone Augustus (6'0''-SF-84, college: LSU) scored 12 of her 14 points in the second half. The Lynx bounced back from a poor defensive showing in Game 1 and held Los Angeles to 33 percent shooting from the field. Reigning MVP Nneka Ogwumike (6'3''-F/C-90, college: Stanford) had 14 points but managed just six field-goal attempts. Beard had 13 points, and Candace Parker (6'4''-C/F-86, college: Tennessee) was 3 for 12 for six points. Minnesota outrebounded the Sparks 46-32. 'When the ball was up on the glass, they went up and got it,' Los Angeles coach Brian Agler said. The first half was a defensive slugging match until a missed jumper seemed to fire Moore up and she ignited a 17-3 run by the Lynx. Moore got the sellout crowd roaring when she cut across the baseline for a defensive rebound and launched a three-quarter-court pass into the hands of Lindsay Whalen (5'9''-PG-82, college: Minnesota), who drove for a layup and was fouled as Moore celebrated. Minnesota extended its lead to 42-25 , but the Sparks quieted Target Center with a 14-0 run in what Reeve called an 'awful' third quarter. Los Angeles got as close as 44-41 in the third quarter and 56-50 in the fourth but had no answer when Augustus cranked up her game down the stretch, and it was Moore's turn to watch and admire. 'Those dreads get to poppin', those nostrils get to flarin',' Moore said of Augustus' game face. 'Just that look in her eye. She went out and made some big plays.'
