PHOENIX (AP) — Maya Moore scored 38 points and Danielle Robinson added 16 and Minnesota held off Phoenix 80-75 on Saturday night.

Minnesota (14-10) used a 14-2 run, with Moore scoring all, in the last 3 1/2 minutes of the first quarter for a 24-17 lead. Phoenix (15-10) drew within 40-38 at halftime and took its last lead on Yvonne Turner's 3-pointer to make it 42-41 after the break. But the Lynx quickly took control and outscored Phoenix 28-12 for a 15-point lead to end the third.

Stephanie Talbot's bucket with 73 seconds left brought Phoenix within 76-75 before the Mercury missed their last two shots.

Minnesota's Seimone Augustus scored 16 points and Rebekkah Brunson had 11 rebounds and three blocks, the last coming on a put-back attempt by Talbot off her offensive rebound with 43 seconds left and the Lynx leading 78-75.

DeWanna Bonner led Phoenix with 29 points.
