LOS ANGELES (AP) — Seimone Augustus scored 26 points, Maya Moore and Damiris Dantas both had double-doubles, and the Minnesota Lynx beat the Los Angeles Sparks 85-72 on Sunday.

Lindsay Whalen added 19 points and Janel McCarville scored 11 to give the Lynx (8-1) five players in double figures. Dantas had 15 points and 11 rebounds and Moore had 12 points and 13 rebounds as Minnesota never trailed.

Candace Parker had 24 points and 11 rebounds and Nneka Ogwuimike scored 10 points for the Sparks (3-4), who didn't make a field goal in the game's final five minutes.

Minnesota led just 75-72 with four and a half minutes remaining but finished on a 10-0 run thanks to six points from Whalen and the Sparks' cold shooting.
