MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Seimone Augustus scored 24 points and the Minnesota Lynx snapped the Seattle Storm's 13-game winning streak with a 72-71 victory Sunday night.
Augustus scored six quick points early in the fourth quarter to extend Minnesota's dwindling lead and became the second-fastest player in WNBA history to reach 2,500 career points, behind only Cynthia Cooper. Charde Houston added 14 points and Lindsay Whalen 11 as the Lynx (8-16) ended a five-game losing skid.
Sue Bird scored 16 points and Tanisha Wright added 15 for Seattle (22-3), which saw it's franchise-best winning streak end. Lauren Jackson, the league's second-leading scorer, finished with 12 points.
