The Minnesota Lynx easily handled the Atlanta Dream for a third straight game and earned an 86-77 win Thursday night to win the WNBA Finals. The Lynx also won the title in 2011.

Atlanta led for under two minutes during the entire three game series. On Thursday the Lynx led by just three points at the half but pulled away with a 26-point third quarter.

All five Lynx starters scored in double figures. In fact, the Lynx got only nine total points off the bench, all courtesy of Monica Wright. Maya Moore led the team with 23 points and Janel McCarville provided the highlight of the night with a between-the-legs pass.

Moore was named finals MVP following the game after averaging 20 points per game in the series.
