TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Maya Moore scored 13 of her 40 points in the final five minutes and the Minnesota Lynx beat the Tulsa Shock 84-75 to run their winning streak to nine games.
Moore scored 30 or more points for the 11th time this season to break a tie for the WNBA record set by Phoenix's Diana Taurasi in 2008.
After Tulsa's Tiffany Jackson-Jones tied it at 69 on a free throw with 5:25 to play, Moore put Minnesota (22-6) ahead to stay with a 3-pointer from the left wing with 5:09 remaining for her 30th point. She added a pair of free throws with 4:13 to go for a five-point advantage.
Tulsa (10-19) would get no closer than three points the rest of the way as Minnesota finished the game on a 15-6 run, with Moore scoring all but two of her team's points.
Seimone Augustus added 22 points for Minnesota.
