ATLANTA (AP) - Maya Moore scored 22 of her season-high 36 points in the second half and the Minnesota Lynx overcame a 16-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Dream 84-82 on Friday night.

Sylvia Fowles had 19 points, 15 in the second half, and added eight rebounds and five blocks to help the Lynx (18-6) win their third straight. Seimone Augustus started after missing 10 games following arthroscopic surgery on her right knee and scored six points.

Angel McCoughtry had 32 points for Atlanta (8-15), including two free throws midway through the third quarter that put the Dream up 59-43. Reshanda Gray’s 20 footer made it 76-70 with 6:31 to play, but the Dream missed 12 straight shots before McCoughtry’s 3-pointer at the buzzer. Shoni Schimmel had 18 points, but only scored five in the second half.

Moore, from nearby Lawrenceville, put the Lynx ahead 80-79 with her fifth 3-pointer with 2:19 left.
