Moore's golden touch follows her -- Lynx star leads Chinese team to title

Posted by: Roman Augustoviz under Lynx Updated: February 5, 2013 - 5:41 PM

Maya Moore has won major  titles now on three continents: North America, Europe and Asia.

On Tuesday, she had 36 points, 16 rebounds and 7 steals as Shanxi beat Zhejiang 97-87 at a neutral site to win the Chinese Women's Basketball Association Finals 3-1.

Moore won several NCAA titles at UConn and one WNBA title with the Lynx in 2011, her rookie season. She also was on the U.S. team when it won the gold in the London Olympics in 2012. And then there was that national title in Spain and EuroLeague title.

And now she has taken China by storm. The latest story on Shanxi and Moore's success is here.

Moore is making four, five times from Shanxi -- in the mid six figures, according to several sources -- what the Lynx pay her. And she has delivered.

Now can she lead the Lynx to the 2013 WNBA title in her other job?

* Liz Cambage, the 6-8 Tulsa star, was Zhejiang's star. She had 29 points and 11 rebounds and also committed and drew a flagrant foul. It got a little rough inside, which almost could have been expected. Cambage was 18-for-18 from the field and had 54 points in Game 3 of the Finals.

I can picture Shanxi's Spanish coach telling his players to make Cambage earn every point this game.

And, finally, a Moore tweet today:
