MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Maya Moore scored 32 points to help the Minnesota Lynx beat the Tulsa Shock 93-82 on Wednesday afternoon.
Moore, who has at least 30 points nine times this season - including each of the three meetings against Tulsa, leads the league in scoring.
Lindsay Whalen added 18 points for the Lynx (17-6), who improved to 17-1 against the Shock since 2010.
Glory Johnson had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Shock (7-15), who have dorpped five straight games. Skylar Diggins led Tulsa with 19 points.
The Shock erased double-digit deficits in the first, second and third quarters, but couldn't overcome their own miscues and six Lynx players with at least 10 points.
The Lynx set a regular season franchise attendance record with the 16,413 fans, who came as part of the team's annual camp day promotion.
