It wasn't a thing of beauty offensively but the Minnesota Lynx overcame a rough shooting day to beat the Dallas Wings, 76-72 Sunday afternoon at College Park Center in Arlington, Texas. 

Minnesota shot just 40.8 percent for the game, but 26 points from Maya Moore and defense that limited Dallas to just 40.3 percent shooting was the difference as the Lynx increased their win streak to seven games. 

Leading 48-33 early in the third quarter, Dallas stormed back to cut the lead to one entering the fourth, and they had the lead until Moore's pair of free throws tied things up 72-72 with 1:50 left in the game. 

Moore then hit a baseline jumper with 1:09 to play to give Minnesota the lead for good. 

Phoenix (13-5), Seattle (12-5) and Los Angeles (12-5) all won Sunday so the Lynx (10-6) remain in fourth place in the Western Conference. 

The seven-game winning streak equals Minnesota's second-longest streak last season. Last year's team also won nine straight to begin the season.
