Quick start leads Lynx to lopsided victory over Dream

The Minnesota Lynx won their second straight game Friday night beating the Atlanta Dream 86-70 at Target Center.

The Lynx didn't waste a lot of time building a big first quarter lead as they outscored the Dream 26-9 during the first quarter.

Five Lynx players were in double figures. Maya Moore led the way with another double-double, finishing with 21 points, 10 rebounds and five assists.

It was Moore's 10th straight game with 20 points or more, setting a new franchise record.

Lindsay Whalen added 15 points to go with four boards, while Asja Jones (12), Sylvia Fowles (12) and Tricia Liston (10), were all in double figures as well.

Despite taking the early lead, the Lynx weren't red hot to start the game. They hit just one of their first 10 three-point attempts on the night.

University of Minnesota standout Shae Kelley made her WNBA debut Friday. The former Gophers star played four minutes but didn't score or shoot in the game.

The Lynx (14-4) are back in action on Saturday night in Tulsa against the Shock.
