Hutchinson native Lindsay Whalen scored a game-high and a career playoff-high 31 points to pace the Lynx, who trailed 28-12 after the first quarter.

League MVP Maya Moore struggled from the floor, shooting just 38 percent, but she still scored 16 points, handed out a game-high 10 assists and grabbed a game-high 8 rebounds. Seimone Augustus scored 21 points and Janel McCarville also hit double figures for the Lynx with 10 points.

Minnesota, the defending champions, awaits the winner between top-seeded Phoenix and Los Angeles in the conference finals.
