Seimone Augustus led the way with 25 points, though Lindsay Whalen, Maya Moore and Rebekah Brunson all also scored in double figures.
The Lynx take over 1st place at 10-4, while Phoenix drops to 10-5. San Antonio can match the Lynx at 10-4 tonight with a win at the Seattle Storm.
EDIT: And not only that but Seattle surprised San Antone so at the All-Star break the Lynx are all alone in 1st at 10-4, Phoenix is 10-5, and San Antone is 9-5.
The Lynx pulled away from a 51-50 half-time deficit to an 80-66 3rd quarter lead by doubling up on the Mercury 30-15 over the 1st 10 minutes of the 2nd half. Augustus hit 3 buckets in 3 minutes, including a pair of 3s, while Candice Wiggins came off the bench to hit a 3, followed by a steal and 2. 4 Lynx steals helped to fuel the run, and the Lynx also had 6 assists on 9 buckets--Whalen 3, Augustus 2 and Brunson 1. The closest Phoenix got after that was the 8 points of the final score.
