It was deja vu for Maya Moore, Seimone Augustus and the Minnesota Lynx. Moore scored 23 points and the Lynx captured their second WNBA title in three years Thursday with an 86-77 win over the Atlanta Dream to sweep the WNBA Finals. Minnesota also swept Atlanta in the 2011 WNBA Finals when Moore was the WNBA Rookie of the Year during the regular season. This time Moore earned the WNBA Finals MVP. Augustus had 14 points and Rebekkah Brunson scored 15 with 12 rebounds for the Lynx, who lost to the Indiana Fever in last year’s WNBA Finals. Minnesota joined the 2010 Seattle Storm as the only team to go unbeaten during the postseason.
