MINNEAPOLIS - Seimone Augustus scored 18 points and Maya Moore added 16 as the Minnesota Lynx beat the San Antonio Silver Stars 85-63 on Friday night for their eighth straight win.

Monica Wright finished with 14 points for the Lynx (15-3), and Lindsay Whalen scored 12. Janel McCarville grabbed a game-high 12 rebounds.

Shameka Christon scored 15 points on 5-for-7 shooting on three-pointers, and Danielle Robinson added 12 points for the Silver Stars (6-13). San Antonio, which had won two straight heading into the All-Star break, shot 25-for-73 (34%) from the field.
