Lynx end losing streak, Moore-Whalen-Brunson set WNBA mark

The trio of Whalen, Moore and Brunson have the most wins ever.

Sylvia Fowles scored 21 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Minnesota Lynx over the Washington Mystics 88-80 Thursday afternoon in D.C. 

The victory snaps Minnesota's four-game losing streak, their longest losing streak in the Maya Moore era and first of four-plus games since the 2010 season. 

Moore scored 19 for the Lynx, who improve to 3-5 on the young season with the win.

The win produced another milestone for three Lynx stars as Lindsay Whalen, Rebekkah Brunson and Moore set the record for most wins (155) by a trio in league history.
