Maya Moore scored 19 points in the second half to lead the Minnesota Lynx to an 83-77 comeback victory over the Indiana Fever Sunday at Target Center, the Associated Press reports.

Moore finished with 25 points, and Seimone Augustus and Lindsay Whalen each scored 16.

The Lynx were trailing at the break, 41-35, after committing 13 turnovers that allowed the Fever to close out the first half on a 32-8 run, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Minnesota regained the lead late in the third quarter on a jumper by Moore, and went ahead for good at 69-67 when Whalen sank two free throws, the Pioneer Press reports.

Lindsay Whalen had five assists in the game, and surpassed a significant milestone of more than 1,800 career assists, the team said. Whalen is the third player in WNBA history to pass that mark.

Karima Christmas scored 18 points to lead Indiana (6-6). Shavonte Zellous and Briann January added 16 points each.

The game closes out a grueling stretch where the Lynx (8-4) played six games in 11 days, going 3-3.

The Lynx play next on Friday in Seattle against the Storm.
