The Minnesota Lynx dropped their third straight game Friday night, falling to the San Antonio Stars 92-76.

The win locked up a spot in the playoffs for the Stars, and marks the second straight game where an opponent has secured a playoff spot by beating the Lynx.

The Stars pulled away in the second half, blowing open a three-point halftime lead by outscoring the Lynx 42-29 in the second half.

San Antonio was led by Jia Perkins. She had a big night off the bench, scoring a game-high 23 points. Danielle Adams added 19 and Danielle Robinson added 12.

The Stars drained 10 three-pointers in the game.

Maya Moore led the Lynx, she scored 20 points, but she didn't have a lot of help. Lindsay Whalen was the only one of her teammates in double figures, she added 13.

The Stars had a little more to play for in the game than Minnesota did. San Antonio was playing for a playoff spot, while Minnesota already knows they will be the second seed in the Western Conference.

In fact, Seminoe Augustus did not play in the game for the Lynx.

The Lynx (24-9) wrap up the regular season on Saturday against Tulsa.
