Liz Cambage dominated in the Dallas Wings' victory over the New York Liberty on Tuesday, and she set a WNBA record in the process.

Australian basketball star Liz Cambage has ripped into the WNBA just a day after breaking the all-time scoring record in a game.

"It's pretty big. I've had big numbers in China, I've had big numbers in Australia". "I've had big numbers in China, I've had big numbers in Australia, and I've heard a lot of people say I could never have big numbers here in the WNBA". "I guess this one is for y'all". She also added 10 rebounds and five blocked shots in her record-setting performance. She made three-pointers, she made layups, hit driving layup shots, and hit her free throws.

However, in order to make a deal possible the FFA would have to top up any salary offered to Bolt from its $3 million fund to attract "marquee" players.

Moore is third in the WNBA for most points in a game, scoring 48 in a double-overtime game in 2014.

Scouting the Wings: Dallas comes into this game having won six of its past seven games and hasn't lost at home since July 1 against the Minnesota Lynx. Working efficiently from the field, the 26-year-old shot 17-for-22 (73 percent). Cambage becomes just the second player in WNBA history to score over 50 points in a game. She is averaging 21.4 points and 9.2 rebounds per game. 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. 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. Originally drafted by the Tulsa Shock with the No. 2 pick in 2011 - one pick after Maya Moore - Cambage played for Tulsa in 2011, skipped the 2012 season because of fatigue after national-team duty, then returned to the Shock for 2013.

Cambage only trails Seattle Storm forward Breanna Stewart in points per game.

Glory Johnson and Allisha Gray each added 13 points for Dallas (13-9), which won its first home game against NY since 2016. I think I had three threes tonight.
