MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Maya Moore scored a franchise-record 19 points in just the second quarter, leading the Minnesota Lynx out of an early funk and onto an 89-74 victory over the Tulsa Shock on Thursday, their last game before the Olympic break.
 
One of the Lynx's three Team USA members, Moore finished with a season-high 28 points and grabbed 11 rebounds before fouling out midway through the fourth quarter. The second-year star shot 8 for 12 from the floor and 11 for 12 from the free-throw line.
 
Glory Johnson led the league-worst Shock with 30 points and 13 rebounds.
 
The Lynx finished the first half on a 25-7 spurt, with 17 points by Moore. Seimone Augustus and Monica Wright each added 14 points.
