PHOENIX – Having an off night offensively, Maya Moore still found a way to help her team win.

Moore was 3 of 12 from the field before she made a three-pointer, stole an inbounds pass and made a layup in the final minute to lift the Minnesota Lynx to their sixth straight victory, an 82-77 victory over the Phoenix Mercury on Sunday.

“I’m always trying to find a way to stay involved and help my team win,” Moore said. “I never give up, I don’t like to give up on my team and I could have easily just let it get to my head and gotten frustrated. But our team has done such a good job of picking each other up.”

Moore finished with 14 points on 5-for-14 shooting, Rebecca Brunson had 18 points and 13 rebounds, and Seimone Augustus scored 15 points for the Lynx, who have won eight of their last nine. Minnesota made 4 of 6 free throws in the final 19 seconds to secure the victory, its ninth straight against Phoenix.
