MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Liz Cambage had 27 points and eight rebounds to lead the last-place Tulsa Shock to an 83-77 win over the Minnesota Lynx on Friday night.

Nicole Powell, Angel Goodrich, Candice Wiggins and Skylar Diggins each added 11 points for the Shock (8-17), who ended a three-game losing streak and beat league-leading Minnesota for the first time in the last 15 meetings. Tulsa last beat Minnesota June 4, 2010.

Seimone Augustus scored a season-high 29 points for the Lynx (17-6), who have lost three in a row.

Cambage scored five points during a 14-0 run that put the Shock up 60-48 midway through the third quarter, their largest lead of the game. Minnesota went on a 7-0 run to pull to 74-69 with 4 minutes left, but the Lynx got no closer until 18.5 seconds remained.

Tulsa leading scorer Glory Jackson (16 ppg) sat out with a concussion, while Minnesota played without leading rebounder Rebekkah Brunson (9 rpg), who has a right knee injury.
