Skylar Diggins scored a season-high 26 points to help the Tulsa Shock beat the Minnesota Lynx 86-78 on Sunday and take over sole possession of the first place in the Western Conference.
Maya Moore scored 33 points and Lindsay Whalen fell a rebound short of a triple double to help the Minnesota Lynx maintain their road dominance against the Tulsa Shock with a 91-85 victory Thursday night.
The defending WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx needed every one of Maya Moore’s career-high 38 points to beat the Tulsa Shock. Moore made two free throws with 11.8 seconds for the last of her points in Minnesota’s 94-93 victory over the Shock on Friday night.
With nine games remaining in their season, the Tulsa Shock hope that Friday night’s win can propel them to a strong finish — and maybe even a playoff berth.
