SEATTLE (AP) — Seimone Augustus scored 22 points, Maya Moore had 20 and Rebekkah Brunson had 20 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Minnesota Lynx past the Seattle Storm 86-73 on Tuesday night for their fifth consecutive win.

Moore and Augustus each hit four 3-pointers for defending champion Minnesota (18-4), which has the league’s best record and already has clinched a playoff berth. Lindsay Whalen had nine assists and Moore added seven.

Camille Little scored 20 points to lead Seattle (10-12), which has lost two in a row at home for the first time since July 2009. Sue Bird added 17 points and Tanisha Wright 11.

Little scored seven to help the Storm cut the lead to five early in the fourth quarter before Moore, Augustus and Brunson combined to score 15 straight points to make it 84-64.
