TULSA, Okla. - Maya Moore scored 13 of her 40 points in the final five minutes and the Minnesota Lynx beat the Tulsa Shock 84-75 to run their winning streak to nine games.

Moore scored 30 or more points for the 11th time this season to break a tie for the WNBA record set by Phoenix's Diana Taurasi in 2008.

Tulsa (10-19) would get no closer than three points the rest of the way as Minnesota finished the game on a 15-6 run, with Moore scoring all but two of her team's points.

Seimone Augustus added 22 points for Minnesota.
