Lynx Cruise Past Dream 83-65
MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Lynx got a couple of big performances from Seimone Augustus and Rebekkah Brunson to help the Lynx cruise past the Atlanta Dream 83-65 for their fifth straight win.
Augustus scored 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting, while Brunson had a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds.
Sylvia Fowles also chipped in 14 points and five blocked shots. Fowles converted a three-point play to spark a 12-2 run to give the Lynx a 24-14 lead with 9 minutes left in the first half and the team never looked back.
Minnesota (20-4) has won at least 20 games in six consecutive seasons, tying the Los Angeles Sparks (1999-2004) for the longest streak in WNBA history.
Minnesota will face the Seattle Storm on Friday at Target Center.
