MINNEAPOLIS – Lindsay Whalen scored 22 points, Seimone Augustus added 18 and the Minnesota Lynx beat the Seattle Storm 90-72 Sunday night for their 18th straight home win.

Rebekkah Brunson had 12 points and 11 rebounds and Maya Moore scored 16 points as Minnesota (16-3) extended its overall winning streak to nine games.

The Storm cut a 31-point second-half deficit to 13 midway through the fourth quarter before the Lynx regained control down the stretch.

Minnesota’s home win streak, dating back to last season, is tied with the 2010-11 Storm teams for the third longest streak in WNBA history. Los Angeles won a record 28 straight at home from 2000-02 and 19 in a row from 2012-13.

Shekinna Stricklen led Seattle (8-11) with 24 points. Tina Thompson had 12 and Tanisha Wright 10.
