MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Maya Moore scored a franchise-record 48 points, the second most in WNBA history, to help the Minnesota Lynx beat the Atlanta Dream 112-108 in double-overtime on Tuesday night.

Moore hit 16 of 30 shots from the field, including 7 of 9 from beyond the arc. The 48 points are just short of the record 51 scored by Riquna Williams last season.

Lindsay Whalen scored 26 points and Rebekka Brunson added 17 points and 12 rebounds in her first game of the season. The 2013 All-Star missed the first 23 games of the season after undergoing knee surgery.

Sancho Lyttle had 26 points and 12 rebounds, while Tiffany Hayes scored 22 and Angel McCoughtry added 21 for the Dream, who were playing without coach Michael Cooper. The team announced Monday that Cooper is taking a temporary leave of absence and will have surgery this week in Atlanta. The Dream say a full recovery is expected.
