MINNEAPOLIS – Janel McCarville scored a season-high 22 points and the short-handed Minnesota Lynx beat the Seattle Storm 74-69 Sunday night.

Maya Moore added 14 points for the Lynx (12-5), who have won three of four. Devereaux Peters had 12 points and Lindsay Whalen scored 10. Seimone Augustus, Minnesota’s second-leading scorer at 17.2 points per game, missed the game with bursitis in her left knee.

Sue Bird scored 21 points to lead Seattle (7-11) and Jenna O’Hea added 14.

Minnesota led by nine early in the fourth quarter before Seattle pulled within one.

Whalen made a jumper with 1:14 to go, but Angel Robinson countered down low with 51.9 seconds left to make it 69-68.

However, Whalen and Moore combined to make five free throws in the final 15.3 seconds to help the Lynx get the win.
