MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Seimone Augustus scored 21 points, Maya Moore had 20 and the Minnesota Lynx held off the Seattle Storm 73-72 Tuesday night to advance to the WNBA Western Conference finals.
Rebekkah Brunson scored 16 points to help the defending champion Lynx bounce back from a double-overtime loss in Game 2 and win the best-of-3 opening round series.
Minnesota will host Los Angeles in the opener of the West finals Thursday night. The Sparks swept San Antonio in their series.
The Storm had a chance to win it in the final seconds, but Lauren Jackson's turnaround jumper went off the rim.
