wnba ball view

Napheesa Collier scored 24 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, and the Minnesota Lynx pulled away for an 87-76 win over the Dallas Wings on Sunday evening in Minneapolis.

Kayla McBride scored a team-high 25 points for Minnesota, which won its second straight game at home. Courtney Williams scored 10 points and Alanna Smith chipped in eight.

Arike Ogunbowale led Dallas with 21 points to go along with six rebounds, six assists and six steals. Monique Billings recorded a double-double with 19 points and 15 boards.

The Lynx entered the fourth quarter with a 61-57 advantage and started the period on a 16-2 run to take control. Ogunbowale made a jump shot from 18 feet to pull the Wings within two with 9:10 to go, and the Lynx reeled off the next 16 points to seize a 77-59 advantage with 4:56 remaining.

Dorka Juhasz started the decisive run with a layup off an assist from McBride. Collier and McBride combined to score the next 14 points, with Collier netting nine and McBride tallying five.

Neither team led by more than single digits during a hard-fought third quarter. Ogunbowale drew a technical with 5:57 left in the quarter, and Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve picked up a technical with 4:21 to go.

Minnesota led 21-20 at the end of the first quarter.

The Wings were up 20-16 after Maddy Siegrist made a jumper with 52 seconds left in the quarter, but the Lynx scored the next five points to take the lead. Juhasz made a 3-pointer with 44.1 seconds left, and Collier made a jump shot with one second to go.

Both teams scored 18 in the second quarter, which meant the Lynx led 39-38 at the half.

Dallas led by as many as nine points when Teaira McCowan made a layup with 4:41 remaining before halftime to put the Wings on top 34-25.

The Lynx closed the second quarter on a 14-4 run to climb back on top. That included a stretch of eight straight points thanks to two jump shots by Williams and one basket apiece by Collier and McBride.
