Janel McCarville scored a season-high 22 points as the Minnesota Lynx beat the Seattle Storm 74-69 Sunday at Target Center, getting even for their defeat in Seattle on Friday night, the Associated Press reports.

Maya Moore added 14 points for the Lynx, while Devereaux Peters had 12 points and Lindsay Whalen scored 10. The Lynx are now 12-5, and have won three of their last four games.

The Lynx played without Seimone Augustus, their second leading scorer, who sat out the game with bursitis in her left knee.

Sue Bird scored 21 points to lead Seattle (7-11) and Jenna O'Hea added 14.

Minnesota led by nine early in the fourth quarter before Seattle went on a run to pull within one point, 69-68, with just under a minute left.

Seattle had a chance to take the lead but Angel Robinson missed a layup, and Minnesota made five of six free throws in the last 15 seconds to put away the game, according to the Star Tribune.

Up next for the Lynx is a home game at Target Center on Thursday against the San Antonio Stars. Game time is 7 p.m.
