Maya Moore has found her groove early on in the 2017 WNBA season.
So much so that she has been right near the top of the league in scoring in the last month and has found herself right at the top of the WNBA in points per game this season.
Her performance so far in 2017 is yet another reason why Moore deserves your vote to the 2017 WNBA All-Star Game on July 22 in Seattle.
“It has been well-documented that Maya had struggled early, but now she’s really found her groove. Understanding that it’s actually gotten a little bit easier for her,” Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve said. “Maya is overall playing better. If you look at eyes and I’m big on facial expressions, I think what you are seeing from Maya now is way different than what we were seeing in the beginning. I think she was struggling and now she is focused and doing the little things.”
Over the past month, Moore has averaged 19 points over seven games. Through 13 games, she is averaging 16.4 points per game, which ranks 13th in the league.
But scoring isn’t the only thing Moore provides. She is also averaging six rebounds (tied for 17th in WNBA), 4.2 assists (12th in WNBA) and 1.4 steals (8th in WNBA) a game.
Moore has found her groove this season, reminding everyone why she is known as one of the best players in the league.
