Who else but Lindsay Whelan and Maya Moore? The duo led the Lynx with 25 points and 22 points, respectively, as the Minnesota Lynx won their fourth consecutive game, 86-75 over the Tulsa Shock on Saturday night.

Whalen had 11 points in the third quarter and Minnesota, now 11-3 and leading the Western Conference, led by as many as 22 in the second half, according to the Star Tribune. Moore hit two of four from the three-point line.

Rebekkah Brunson added 17 and had a game-high 12 rebounds.

Tulsa (3-13) dropped its sixth straight game, its past five losses coming by double digits, according to the Pioneer Press. Riquana Williams of the Shock had 22 points, including 13 in the second quarter.

It was the fourth straight win for the Lynx.

"This was our fourth game in a week and I wanted to make sure we ended the week with an exclamation point," Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve said. "Tonight wasn't perfect, but I am very happy with our effort and getting the win."
