Sylvia Fowles couldn't be stopped Wednesday night, dominating from start to finish en route to a rare 20-20 game as the Minnesota Lynx rolled over the Dallas Wings 76-68 at Target Center. 

Fowles was unstoppable, roaring her way to an incredible 23 points and 20 rebounds. She also have five steals and two blocks, not to mention eight of 20 rebounds were on the offensive end. 

It's the first 20-20 game in Lynx history, and 17th in WNBA history. Unsurprisingly, Fowles now owns three of the 18 in league history. She did it twice in 2013 when she played for Chicago. 

It's a solid bounce back win for the Lynx after losing at the buzzer in Sunday's season opener against the Los Angeles Sparks. 

Minnesota now hits the road for three straight games beginning Friday night against the New York Liberty.
