The first night back from All-Star break turned into a historic night for the WNBA.

Back with a Bang: Maya Moore's 48 Points, Two Milestone Games Highlight Wild Tuesday

The 2014 WNBA All-Star Game, an overtime thriller in Phoenix featuring a record-breaking performance by Shoni Schimmel, appeared to be the climax of the WNBA regular season. Then Tuesday night happened.

The first game night back from the four-day break turned into one of the wildest nights in league history, featuring three career-high scoring outbursts, a 2013 Finals rematch that went to two overtimes and a winning streak that reached 13 games.

Here's the rundown, in case you missed it:


Maya Moore's 48 Points Carry Lynx Over Dream

The league's leading MVP candidate played like it in a rollercoaster 2013 WNBA Finals rematch against Angel McCoughtry and the Atlanta Dream.

Her 48 points -- 10 in the first quarter, 13 in the second, 15 in the third, 2 in the fourth and 7 in the two overtimes -- were the second most in league history, behind Riquina Williams' 51 last season. She shot a blistering 7-of-9 from beyond the arc and added 10 rebounds for good measure.


Robinson's Game-Winner Spoils Two Career Nights

The Tulsa Shock's fast-rising backcourt of breakout sophomore Skylar Diggins and rookie No. 2 overall pick Odyssey Sims combined for 73 points on 29-for-43 shooting.

And the Shock lost.

That's because the Stars hung right with Tulsa, shooting 55% themselves, until All-Star Danielle Robinson drove in for the game-winning layup with 3.5 seconds left.


Lucky 13: Phoenix Extends Winning Streak in Another Rout

You know it was a crazy night when the 19-3 Mercury get buried in the footnotes. But the Phoenix machine kept rolling against the Storm, with Diana Taurasi leading the way with 22 points on 8/10 and Brittney Griner chipping in 17 points (8/12), 7 rebounds and 5 blocks.

It was the Mercury's 13th consecutive win (eight by double-digits), the third-longest streak in WNBA history. The 2001 L.A. Sparks hold the record with 18 straight in 2001, on their way to a league-record 28 wins on the season.
