Maya Moore leads Minnesota Lynx to WNBA Title

DULUTH, Georgia (AP) — Maya Moore scored 23 points, and Rebekkah Brunson had 15 points and 12 rebounds as the Minnesota Lynx beat the Atlanta Dream 86-77 on Thursday to win their second WNBA title in three years.

Tiffany Hayes finished with 20 points and Alex Bentley had 18 for Atlanta, which was swept in the best-of-5 finals for the third time in four years.

The Dream cut the lead to three points early in the third quarter, but Moore came off a screen on the next possession and hit a 3-pointer to make it 45-39. She and Brunson combined for 19 of Minnesota’s 26 points in the third.

Atlanta forward Angel McCoughtry, the WNBA’s two-time defending scoring champion, finished with 13 points and shot just 28.5 percent in the finals.
