Minnesota Lynx stay undefeated with win over the Dallas Wings on Sunday.
The Minnesota Lynx started the weekend with a victory over the Washington Mystics that helped Lindsay Whalen become the all-time WNBA wins leader. The Lynx capped off the weekend with another victory and they stayed undefeated for the season.
One person has been standing out all season long and that remained the case on Sunday in Texas.
Sylvia Fowles has been putting up MVP-like numbers and continued on that path with a season-high 30 point game in a 91-74 win over Dallas. Fowles also grabbed nine rebounds in the Lynx victory.
Maya Moore finished second in the point tally on the night with 23 points. Moore also grabbed four rebounds and dished out four assists. Rebekkah Brunson was the only player in the game to notch a double-double with 13 point and 14 rebounds. Brunson also had four assists in the contest. Whalen had four points with three assists and three rebounds. Seimone Augustus added six points with nine assists and five rebounds.
The game was a closer one than the final score does indicate. The Wings did have a one-point lead after the first quarter of play. Minnesota outscored the Wings by eight points in the second and by five in both the third and fourth quarters.
