MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Seimone Augustus scored 22 points as the Minnesota Lynx beat the Los Angeles Sparks 85-72 on Tuesday night for their sixth win in seven games.

Lindsay Whalen had 16 points and seven assists and Taj McWilliams-Franklin added 14 points and nine rebounds for Minnesota (11-4). The Lynx never trailed, and held a 20-point lead at one point for the eighth time this season.

Kristi Toliver scored 28 points for the Sparks (6-9), who lost their third straight to fall to 2-3 since interim coach Joe Bryant replaced Jennifer Gillom on July 12.

The Lynx won despite the ejection of All-Star forward Rebekkah Brunson in the fourth quarter after she was whistled for her second technical foul. Brunson finished with six points and six rebounds in nearly 24 minutes.
