Damiris Dantas contributed 14 points, while Rachel Banham had 13 off the bench and Sylvia Fowles added 10 points for the Lynx.

The Lynx played without forward Karima Christmas-Kelly, who suffered a season-ending ruptured Achilles tendon in Tuesday night's loss vs. Seattle. Guard Lexie Brown sat out because she is in the concussion protocol.
