Dallas' Liz Cambage set the WNBA's single-game scoring record with 53 points Tuesday in the Wings' 104-87 victory over NY in Arlington, Texas. Cambage was remarkably efficient, going 17-for-22 from the field with a near-perfect 15-for-16 mark from the the free throw line and a blistering 4-for-5 clip from downtown. She added five points in the third quarter and broke her previous high of 37 points on a three-point play with 7:29 remaining.

Cambage returned to the WNBA after a five-year hiatus, spending the majority of her time in China before returning to the world's premier competition in 2018.

"I just was feeling it, I guess", Cambage said in a television interview following the game, a wide smile on her face.

"I have had big numbers in China and big numbers in Australia over the summer", Cambage said. On top of her dominant scoring performance, she added 10 rebounds and five blocks.

Moore is third in the WNBA for most points in a game, scoring 48 in a double-overtime game in 2014. Not to forget, the original franchise was the Detroit Shock, which became the Tulsa Shock that we know now of as the Dallas Wings. Entering Tuesday's game, she was averaging 19.9 points and 9.1 rebounds per game, good for seventh and second-best in the league, respectively.

In the previous game against Seattle on the road, Liz Cambage was given a technical for just simply looking at a referee when she scored on a late basket to bring the Wings within one, and the Storm were able to win off of that possession.

Remarkable. One of the best post players this season, bar none. After their win against the Liberty on Tuesday, coach Fred Williams said he expects the Wings will need to go at least 12 players deep during this stretch. I think I had three threes tonight. Cynthia Cooper of the Houston Comets was the first player to score 30 points in a WNBA game, which she did in July 1997, and then she exceeded her own record in each of her next two games, first with 32 points and then 44.
