Rhyne Howard continues to impress in her rookie campaign, showcasing her skills with a step-back jumper in the Atlanta Dream’s win Wednesday against the Minnesota Lynx.

Howard went on to lead all Dream scorers with 22 points and four rebounds. The performance came the same day that Howard was named Rookie of the Month by the WNBA.

With an average of 17.4 points per game on the season, Howard ranks eighth in the league and first amongst rookies.

The Dream outscored the Lynx in all but one quarter as four other players scored in double-digits to help lead the Atlanta Dream to a 6-3 start. Despite a 20-point performance from Kayla McBride, the Lynx fell to 2-8 on the season.

Atlanta next plays the Chicago Sky on Friday.
