Silver Stars force Game 3 with Lynx

SAN ANTONIO (KTTC/AP) -- Jia Perkins scored 24 points and Sophia Young had 23 as the San Antonio Silver Stars beat the Minnesota Lynx 84-75 Sunday to even their first-round series.

Becky Hammon added 18 for the Silver Stars, who had lost seven straight games to Minnesota and are trying to get past the first round for the first time since reaching the WNBA finals in 2008.

Seimone Augustus scored 24 points and Maya Moore had 16 for Minnesota, which had the league's best regular-season record but has never won a playoff series. Lindsay Whalen added 15 points for the Lynx, and Rebekkah Brunson had a game-high 16 rebounds.

The deciding Game 3 will be Tuesday night at Minneapolis.
