MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Maya Moore and Seimone Augustus both scored 22 points and the Minnesota Lynx rebounded from their worst performance of the season to beat the Tulsa Shock 88-79 on Sunday night.

Lindsay Whalen had 19 points and nine assists for Minnesota (6-2), which has won four of five. Rebekkah Brunson had 11 points and 11 rebounds.

Glory Johnson scored 24 points to lead Tulsa (3-8), which lost for the first time in three games. Candice Wiggins had 14.

In a 28-point loss on Friday at Los Angeles, Augustus, Moore, Whalen and Brunson combined for just 11 points on 5 of 22 shooting.

Moore had 15 points in the first half, Augustus added 14, and Whalen had 11 as Minnesota shot 60.7 percent and took a 49-40 lead before halftime. A 3-pointer by Moore gave the Lynx a 69-55 lead entering the fourth quarter.
