ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Maya Moore scored 26, including the final six points of the game, to lift the Minnesota Lynx to their seventh straight win, 76-72 over the Dallas Wings on Sunday.

Moore made a pair of free throws to tie it at 72 with 1:50 left and hit a baseline jumper with 1:09 left to give the Lynx (10-6) the lead for good.

The Wings (7-8) took their first lead since the middle of the second quarter when Allisha Gray capped an 8-0 run to make it 72-70 with 2:12 left.

The Lynx built a 48-33 lead with an 8-0 run to open the third quarter. The Wings cut the deficit to 56-55 before the end of the period.
