Playing in the same arena in which she led her high school to three state titles, Maya Moore poured in 23 points Thursday night to lead the Minnesota Lynx past the Atlanta Dream, 86-77,in Duluth, Ga., to win their second WNBA title in three years.
Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve (La Salle), whose Lynx were unbeaten in seven playoff games this year, said before the game that her team did not want to return home to play again.
"When we come back to Minneapolis, it's going to be for a parade," she said.
Strike up the band.
The Lynx, who won each of the first two games by 25 points, trailed by three at the half, but roared back to to complete the three-game sweep.
