You would think with 8 turnovers in the 4th quarter and only 7 total points from Maya Moore would equal a loss for the Lynx. Fortunately for them, they entered the 4th quarter with a 20 point lead and played enough defense to hold on to win 75-65. The win puts the Lynx record at 2-1 and sinks the Shock to 0-2. Tulsa, of course, had last years 2nd overall pick in the draft behind Minnesota and used it to select Australian native Liz Cambage. Cambage had a monster game scoring 16 points and grabbing 15 boards and was a force in the paint. Not to be outdone, Rebekkah Brunson finished with 17 points and 15 boards. Minnesota native Lindsay Whalen was excellent in the game pushing the ball up the floor and into transition most of the first half. This is what helped the Lynx grab such a large lead early. It also allowed her to get to the line 10 times. Check out the Yahoo! box score here to get a complete look at all the scorers. Don’t worry too much about Moore’s down game as she was faced with a double team quick and often. Also, she was a pretty strong force on the defensive end finishing with 3 steals and a block. The Lynx will travel to Seattle to face the Storm on Thursday. Lets hope they can keep the win streak up.
