Sylvia Fowles is at the top of her game.
Now in her 14th season in the league, the Minnesota center is still putting up consistent numbers on both sides of the ball.
Fowles came up big for the Lynx on Wednesday night, recording a staggering 26 points, 19 rebounds and five blocks. The last WNBA player to have such a game was Britney Griner in 2018, when she put up 33 points, 18 rebounds and seven blocks.
Fowles’s massive night helped Minnesota defeat the Dream 87-85.

Fowles has had four 20-point games this season and has posted four double-doubles, averaging nearly 30 minutes on the floor per game. The former MVP has also been shooting an impressive 64 percent from the field and collecting 9.6 rebounds per game.
At 35 years old, Fowles is having one of her best starts to date, putting up numbers that resemble those from her 2017 MVP season. With the Olympics around the corner, Fowles could have a banner year as she represents the U.S. in Tokyo and pushes the Lynx up the league standings at home.
According to Minnesota head coach Cheryl Reeve, Fowles is already the best center in the history of the league.
