Two days after scoring the most points in a single WNBA game ever, Aussie superstar Liz Cambage has written herself into the record books again.
The Opals linchpin had 35 points and 17 rebounds on Friday to break the WNBA’s two-game scoring record, on her way to steering the Dallas Wings to a 90-81 win over the Washington Mystics.

Coming off a historic 53-point performance on Tuesday, Cambage broke Minnesota star Maya Moore’s record two-game total of 80 points set in 2014 by eight.
Cambage also became the first player with back-to-back 30-point, 10-rebound games since Moore in 2014.
Kayla Thornton added 15 points and Glory Johnson had 13 for Dallas (14-9).
Dallas had three players score in double digits in the first half.
Cambage had 17 points and nine rebounds, and Thornton and Johnson each scored 10.
Dallas led 81-73 with 4:59 left in the fourth quarter and didn’t score again until Cambage’s three-point play at 1:32. But the Mystics couldn’t get closer than four points during the stretch.
LaToya Sanders made 10 of 13 field goals and scored a career-high 25 points for Washington (13-10).
Elena Delle Donne was held to nine points on three-of-14 shooting.
The American basketball world was left stunned by Cambage’s incredible feats.
Gotta admit I didn’t expect much from Liz Cambage this season, but right now she’s balling #WNBA

Liz Cambage is pretty amazing 😍🔥 To think that there were some doubts about her being a franchise player, she wound up playing overseas for several years, and returned to the WNBA to establish herself as one of the best players in the league.
Go @ecambage Go! ❤❤❤
