ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Sylvia Fowles had 29 points on 11-of-14 shooting and added 12 rebounds to help the Minnesota Lynx beat the Seattle Storm 93-82 on Sunday night for their sixth straight victory.

Maya Moore had 24 points, and Rebekkah Brunson added 20 for WNBA-leading Minnesota (19-2). Jia Perkins, starting with Seimone Augustus out for personal reasons, had a career-high seven assists and a season-high six rebounds.

Breanna Stewart’s layup trimmed Seattle’s deficit to 44-40 early in the third, but Fowles scored 14 points in the quarter - including a personal 10-7 run in which she converted two offensive rebounds into four second-chance points - and the Lynx went into the fourth leading 69-57. Moore had 12 points in the final quarter and her 3-pointer with 1:35 to go gave Minnesota its biggest lead, 91-65.

Jewell Loyd led Seattle (10-13) with 26 points, and Breanna Stewart added 24. The Storm have lost three of four.

Minnesota shot 52.2 percent (36 of 69) from the field and had 25 assists.
