The Minnesota Lynx stay red hot as they survived a double overtime thriller with the Atlanta Dream 112-108 at the Target Center, thanks to the franchise/personal record 48 points by Maya Moore.

Lindsay Whalen scored 26 and Rebekkah Brunson added 17 points and 12 rebounds in her first game since undergoing knee surgery. Moore also finished with 10 Reb, 4 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk.
Sancho Lyttle had 26 points and 12 rebounds, while Tiffany Hayes scored 22 and Angel McCoughtry added 21 for the Dream. The playoff atmosphere carried over from most of the 2nd half and into both overtimes. It was the Lynx fifth win in a row.
It was Native American heritage night and several hundred Red Lakers traveled to the Target Center to support Atlanta Dream, Native American rookie phenom, Shoni Schimmel. About 20 members also did a performance during haltime. The announced attendance was 9,332.
