BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Napheesa Collier scored 10 of her 20 points in the fourth quarter Thursday night and finished with 10 rebounds and the Minnesota Lynx held on to beat the Chicago Sky 83-81.

Damiris Dantas added 14 points, Rachel Banham scored 13 and Sylvia Fowles had 10 points and seven rebounds for Minnesota (2-1).

Azura Stevens had 16 points and 11 rebounds and Cheyenne Parker added 16 points and 10 boards for the Sky (2-1).

Crystal Dangerfield made two free throws to give the Lynx a 12-point lead with 3:26 to play, but Parker hit a 3-pointer eight seconds later to spark a 10-3 run that trimmed Chicago's deficit to 79-74 when Stevens made a 3 with 1:41 to go.

Collier answered with a layup, but Courtney Vandersloot made a layup and then Diamond DeShields had a steal and a layup to make it a three-point game with 53.6 seconds left.

After two free throws by Collier, Allie Quigley's 3-pointer capped the scoring with 38.2 remaining.

Vandersloot missed two potential tying layups in the final seven seconds and Gabby Williams couldn't convert an alley-oop at the buzzer.
