Moore's big night leads Lynx over Stars and into playoffs


The Minnesota Lynx held off a tough challenge from the San Antonio Stars to pick up an 83-76 victory at Target Center Tuesday night.

The Lynx (17-6) win keeps the Stars winless on the road this season, while locking up a playoff spot for Minnesota.

After a slow start the Lynx flipped the script on the Stars in the second half, as Minnesota outscored San Antonio 30-13 during a third quarter run that helped them take control of the game.

It was another big night for Maya Moore. She finished with 32 points and nine rebounds on 11-of-23 shooting, including this highlight-reel finish.

Moore was also a perfect 10-of-10 from the free-throw line. Sylvia Fowles chipped in 16 points, while Ana Cruz added 11 points and six boards.

Lindsay Whalen had nine assists and passed a major career milestone in the game.

Kayla McBride led the Stars with 24 points. She was 3-of-7 from behind the three-point line. Jia Perkins chipped in 15.
