MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Diana Taurasi had 21 points and 11 assists and Candice Dupree had 18 points and 10 rebounds and the Phoenix Mercury beat the Minnesota Lynx 80-72 on Sunday.

Brittney Griner scored 14 points and DeWanna Bonner added 12 for the Mercury (7-3).

The Mercury beat the Lynx for the first time since 2011 — a streak spanning 10 regular season and four playoff games.

Maya Moore had 14 points for the Lynx (8-3). The Mercury handed the Lynx their first home loss of the season as Minnesota has lost three of its past four games after starting 7-0 on the season.

After trailing by as much as 23 points, the Lynx pulled within single digits in the fourth quarter, but the comeback attempt fell short.
