Moore had 4 rebounds and 3 assists to go with her 20 points, which she scored while shooting 8-for-17 from the field. The fifth-year forward is now two games away from tying the record for consecutive 20-plus-point games – held by Diana Taurasi at 13 straight – according to WNBA.com.

Newly acquired center Sylvia Fowles also provided a strong scoring punch, with 19 points (including shooting 9-for-10 from the free throw line). Rebekah Brunson pulled in a team-high 12 rebounds.

Riquna Williams led Tulsa in the loss, scoring 35 of her team's points.

At 15-4, the Lynx are atop the WNBA standings and have won three in a row.

Tulsa is on a six-game losing streak.

Minnesota's next game is Tuesday at the Los Angeles Sparks. Tip is at 9 p.m. CST.
