In front of her home crowd, Maya Moore claimed her third straight #WNBAAllStar MVP, going for 18 pts, 8 reb & 6 ast to pace #TeamParker to an electric 119-112 win over #TeamDelleDonne in Minnesota. The game featured an all-new format, in which team captains Candace Parker and Elena Delle Donne drafted teams from the pool of All-Stars. Next up: Las Vegas in 2019.
In addition to Moore’s big day, Allie Quigley added 18 pts, Skylar Diggins-Smith chipped in 17 and Liz Cambage (11 pts, 8 reb) finished with a dunk to punctuate Team Parker’s win. Kristi Toliver’s 23 led all scorers.
