New York, NY ( - Minnesota's Maya Moore and Chicago's Elena Delle Donne have been chosen as the WNBA's top players for the month of May.

Moore earned Western Conference honors and led all players for the month with a scoring average of 29.2 points in six games. She also shot 51.6 percent from the floor and was third in rebounding with 8.8 per game, helping the Lynx to a perfect 6-0 mark in May.

The MVP runner-up a season ago had the most prolific four-game scoring stretch in WNBA history with 135 points in the first four games of this season. She became the first player in league annals to post four straight games of at least 30 points in that span.

Delle Donne's scoring average of 23.0 points was the best in the Eastern Conference and trailed only Moore's effort in the league. She scored 21 or more points in five of Chicago's six games, helping the Sky to the East's best mark of 5-1.
