Lynx, Sky on top today

The Lynx blew out the Mercury, 91-59. Maya Moore lead Minnesota with 23 points, which snapped a five-game Phoenix win streak.

Unbelievably, Lynx forward Seimone Augustus left the game in the third quarter with an ankle injury, and didn’t return.

The Sky crushed the Liberty, 93-64, on the strength of Elena Delle Donne’s 20 points and Epiphanny Prince’s 18.
