A short-handed Minnesota Lynx team remained unbeaten with a 94-93 win in Tulsa on Friday night.

The win moves the Lynx to 3-0.

Maya Moore led the way for the Lynx. She finished with a career high 38 points, and made two free throws with 11.8 seconds to play to give the Lynx the lead. She has scored 30 points in every game this year.

The free throws capped a rally from the Lynx who trailed 93-90 with under a minute to play.

After Moore's free throws the Lynx defense took over and forced a contested three from Skylar Diggins with just two-tenths of a second to play.

Diggins led the Shock with 21 points in the loss.

Seimone Augustus added 23 for Minnesota, while Lindsay Whalen had 11 points and five assists.

After surging out to a big first quarter, which saw the Lynx take a 35-21 lead, they cooled off throughout the game. Minnesota maintained a 12 point lead at the half, but faded in the second.

The Lynx scored just 12 points in the fourth quarter, four of those points came in the final minute to pull out the win.

The Lynx return to Target Center on Saturday to face New York.
