WNBA's Lynx one win from title

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Seimone Augustus scored 20 points and Lindsay Whalen had 14 points and five assists to push the Minnesota Lynx to the brink of their second title in three seasons with an 88-63 victory against the Atlanta Dream in Game 2 of the WNBA Finals on Tuesday night.

Rebekkah Brunson had 12 points and 10 rebounds and Maya Moore had 14 points and eight boards for the Lynx, who lead the best-of-5 series 2-0.

Angel McCoughtry scored 15 points for the Dream, but made just 5-of-18 shots and was in foul trouble most of the night.

Game 3 is Thursday night in Georgia. It won’t be played at the Dream’s usual home — Phillips Arena in Atlanta — because of a scheduling conflict with Disney On Ice. Instead, the teams will meet at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth, about 20 minutes away. Moore will feel as at home as the Dream at Gwinnett, where she led her high school to three Georgia state titles.
