Maya Moore scored 23 points to lead the Lynx to a convincing win over the Phoenix Mercury, 91-59 at Target Center Sunday evening.
It's Minnesota's 14th consecutive home win.
The ugly spot in the game came in the second half when Lynx guard Seimone Augustus turned her ankle chasing a loose ball. She did not return to the game.
Augustus MRI today revealed her ankle is a sprain and nothing more. No timetable has been put on her return.
The 32 point blowout was highlight by a lockdown defensive performance on Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner.
Taurasi, the WNBA's leading scorer (23 points/game), was held to four points. Griner, a 6-foot-8 rookie phenom, finished with eight points and 11 rebounds.
Note: The Lynx finished 26-35 from the free-throw line. Phoenix had just five, free-throw attempts.
