The Minnesota Lynx bounced back from a recent cold streak with a big 21-point victory over Tulsa on Tuesday.

After a disheartening stretch of games, the Minnesota Lynx bounced back on Tuesday afternoon with an impressive 107-86 victory over the hometown Tulsa Shock.

Minnesota was powered offensively by the duo of Maya Moore and Candice Wiggins, who combined for 49 points on 16-for-24 shooting from the field. Wiggins, who drilled seven of her nine three-point attempts in 27 minutes off the bench, more than doubled her previous season-high mark in points with the strong performance.

The versatile Moore, thrust into the power forward spot for the first time ever while the team deals with injured Rebekkah Brunson, chipped in six rebounds and one block in addition to drawing plenty of praise from her coach. "Maya was tremendous playing the 4 position for the first time,'' Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve told the media after the game. "She was really poised and made plays for us."

Next up on the schedule for the first-place Lynx is a Thursday rematch with the Shock back in Minnesota.
