Seattle, Wash. – The Lynx extended their record setting winning streak Sunday afternoon, prowling past the Storm 96-84 in the process.
It looked bleak early for the reigning league champs as the Storm was able to come out to an early lead that would last the entirety of the first quarter, going up by as many as 10 points. However, with just under three minutes remaining, Minnesota went on a mission to prove that their record is no fluke, closing out the frame only down three.
The Lynx then made their mark during the second and third quarter, outscoring Seattle 54-37. The Storm attempted a comeback during the fourth, but by then the damage had been done and Minnesota upped their record to 12-0, again breaking their own mark for best season start.
Maya Moore lead all Lynx scorers with 18 points, also recording a team-high seven rebounds. Natasha Howard and Sylvia Fowles chipped in with 16 points each.
Breanna Stewart showed why she was picked first overall, as she scored 21 for the Storm to go along with her 9 rebounds.
All eyes on will now be on Los Angeles, when the Lynx visit the also unbeaten Sparks on Tuesday. The victor will have limited time to celebrate with a rematch schedule for Friday at the Target Center
