Moore leads Lynx to a dreamy comeback victory in Atlanta

The Minnesota Lynx got back one of their key players and then came from behind to beat the Atlanta Dream 84-82 Friday night in Atlanta.

The Lynx, who have already clinched a Western Conference playoff spot, got back forward Seimone Augustus.

Augustus had missed the last 10 games after undergoing knee surgery. She played 24 minutes in her return to the Lynx lineup and scored six points while grabbing four boards.

You could see there was still some rust for Augustus to kick off. She finished just 3-of-13 from the floor.

There was some rust for the Lynx too, who got off to another slow start, only to come from behind to win again.

Maya Moore put the Lynx on her back once again in this one. She scored a game-high 36 points on 10-of-19 shooting, including knocking down 5-of-10 from behind the three-point line.

Sylvia Fowles added 19 for Minnesota to go with eight rebounds.

The Dream kept it close. A big reason was the play of Angel McCoughtry, who scored 32 on on 10-of-24 shooting. Shoni Schimmel added 18 points to go with eight assists and six rebounds.
