The Lynx did not miss the league's third-leading scorer in a 66-53 victory over the San Antonio Silver Stars, who have lost four in a row.

Tamika Williams scored 13 points and Nicole Ohlde added 10 for Minnesota, which never trailed and led by as many as 15 points on its way to its ninth win in 11 games.

They picked up the slack for Smith, who averages 18.8 points but injured her right knee Friday against Washington and is expected to be out two to three weeks.

The Silver Stars were led by Adrienne Goodson and Semeka Randall with 10 points each. San Antonio is 3-17 since a 3-1 start.
