Earlier this week, WNBA star Monica Wright confirmed that she and Kevin Durant are now engaged. Wright broke the news to reporters after the Minnesota Lynx Sunday night victory over the Phoenix Mercury. Last night, Wright’s amazing week continued with a huge performance in the Lynx 94-72 win over the Atlanta Dream.
Monica scored a season-high 22 points, shooting 7-10 from the field, and added five assists, three rebounds, and three steals. Lindsay Whalen contributed another 20 points in Minnesota’s win. The Lynx have now won 15 straight home games and stand at first place in the Western Conference with a 9-3 record. Coming into the game, Atlanta had the best record in the WNBA at 10-1.
Wright’s been previously spotted in Durant signature models, and tonight she followed suit with the Nike KD VI “DC Preheat”. This limited edition colorway quickly sold out upon release, but the KD VI is available in its “Seat Pleasant” variation for $130. The low-profile Nike KD VI features Zoom Air cushioning in the heel and Max Air cushioning for impact protection.
