The Minnesota Lynx made Target Center a nightmare for the Atlanta Dream Tuesday night.

Atlanta had the WNBA's best record, 10-1, entering the game, but the Lynx dominated the Dream from start to finish in a 94-72 win.

Kevin Durant's soon-to-be wife, Monica Wright, led Minnesota with 22 points. Wright started in place of Seimone Augustus, who missed the game with a sprained ankle. Durant sent out a tweet for Wright. It signifies Wright's No. 22 and her point total in the game.

Lindsay Whalen scored 20 points to go along with five assists, Maya Moore added 19 points, and Rebekkah Brunson had 10 points and 12 rebounds for her fifth double-double of the season.

At 9-3 the Lynx still own the best record in the Western Conference.
