Shock lose 17th straight, match WNBA record

Seimone Augustus scored a game-high 16 tying loss with 54 rout at Target Center.

The loss was the Shock's 17th in a row, tying the mark set by the 2009 Atlanta Dream in the franchise's inaugural season.

Minnesota, on the other hand, has won 11 of its last 12 games and enjoys a five-game cushion for first place in the Western Conference.

Lindsay Whalen added 12 points and nine assists for the Lynx, while the Shock did not have a player score in double digits.

Sheryl Swoopes paced Tulsa with nine points, and Ivory Latta and Liz Cambage each contributed eight.
