Minneapolis, MN – Seimone Augustus answered Angel McCoughtry's milestone night with a big fourth quarter to move the Lynx one victory away from their first WNBA championship.
Augustus scored 15 of her franchise-playoff record 36 points in the last quarter and totaled eight rebounds, as Minnesota rallied to beat Atlanta, 101-95, in Game 2 of the title series.
McCoughtry had a WNBA Finals-record 38 points, but was limited to only five on 1-of-7 shooting in the last quarter.
The Lynx, who withstood a 33-point barrage from McCoughtry to notch an 88-74 victory in Sunday night's series-opener, can complete the sweep Friday night when the series shifts to Atlanta for Game 3.
Minnesota won despite another awful game from Maya Moore, who had just eight points, as she was saddled with foul trouble.
