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.
