SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Danielle Adams scored 28 points, and the San Antonio Silver Stars closed the regular season with a 99-84 victory over the Minnesota Lynx on Sunday.
Tangela Smith added 15 points, Danielle Robinson had 14, and Shameka Christon scored 13 for playoff-bound San Antonio (21-13).
“We were just moving the ball well, playing like a team,” Adams said. “(We were) just getting good shots. We played our defense, and it was just a great team effort for the win.”
Seimone Augustus had 18 points, Monica Wright added 16, and Lindsay Whalen scored 14 for defending champion Minnesota (27-7). The Lynx, who have the WNBA’s best record, missed an opportunity to match the best regular-season record in league history.
The Silver Stars set a season high for points in a game despite playing without Becky Hammon and Sophia Young, who didn’t suit up to rest for the playoff series against Los Angeles.
