MONDAY CARDINAL COUPLE Lynx extinguish Sparks 85-72 Cardinal Couple Radio broadcast now in archives
With a strong start, a strong finish and a well-rounded offensive effort, the Minnesota Lynx are back on the winning track.
Seimone Augustus scored 26 points, Maya Moore and Damiris Dantas both had double-doubles, and the Lynx rebounded from their first loss of the season with an 85-72 victory over the Los Angeles Sparks in L.A.
Lindsay Whalen added 19 points and Janel McCarville scored 11 to give the Lynx (8-1) five players in double figures. Dantas had 15 points and 11 rebounds and Moore had 12 points and 13 rebounds as Minnesota never trailed.
Louisville's Asia Taylor did not play in the win.
The Lynx held a commanding 30-16 lead after the first quarter.
After the first quarter, Parker rallied the Sparks back into it with 11 points in the second quarter to cut Minnesota's lead to 42-37 at halftime.
The Lynx used another quick start to pull away again, reeling off an 11-5 run to open the second half and extend the lead
back out to double figures. The Sparks put together a few mini runs of their own, but Minnesota never let them within three points and went into the final quarter up 66-61.
The Sparks fought back and cut the lead to 75-72 with four and a half minutes remaining, but Minnesota got busy defensively and finished on 10-0 run to secure the win.That's when the Sparks offense went ice cold. They missed their final six field goal attempts and turned it over five times in that span.
Candace Parker had 24 points and 11 rebounds and reserve Jantel Lavender scored 12 points for the Sparks (3-4), who didn't make a field goal in the game's final five minutes
The Lynx offense wasn't much better in the final minutes, but a pair of Lindsay Whalen jumpers and six free throws was enough to secure the victory.
