Lynx forward Maya Moore is the WNBA Western Conference player of the week for the fourth consecutive week, and fifth time this season.

Moore scored 20 points, had nine rebounds and added four steals in a victory over Phoenix on Thursday, then had 40 points in Saturday's win at Tulsa. She's the first WNBA player to have 11 or more 30-point games in a season, and leads the league in scoring (24.7) and minutes played (35.2).

New York’s Tina Charles was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

The Lynx (22-6) have won nine in a row, but are still a game-and-a-half behind Phoenix in the Western Conference race heading into Tuesday night's game at Indiana.
