TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Candice Wiggins scored 25 points, Maya Moore had 24 and the Minnesota Lynx beat the Tulsa Shock 107-86 on Tuesday.
Seimone Augustus added 17 points, Lindsay Whalen had 14 and Taj McWilliams-Franklin 12 for the Lynx (13-4), who finished with a season-high scoring total.
Moore, playing power forward for the first time in place of the injured Rebekkah Brunson, shot 8 for 12 from the field and 6 for 6 from the free-throw line.
“Maya was tremendous playing the 4 position for the first time,” Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said. “She was really poised and made plays for us.”
The Lynx shot a WNBA-record 69.5 percent from the field (41 of 59), topping the previous mark of 65.4 percent by Los Angeles on June 15, 2005.
“Minnesota is really good,” Tulsa coach Gary Kloppenburg said. “The second half we tried to get up, really fight them and they hit some difficult shots. It is tough when teams are making tough shots like that. That type of percentage is going to be difficult to overcome for anybody.”
