Atlanta 73, Minnesota 67
MINNEAPOLIS, July 9 (AP) -- Betty Lennox scored 17 of her 24 points in the second half and the Atlanta Dream won their second straight game, beating the Minnesota Lynx 73-67 on Wednesday night.
Trailing 66-60 with 3:11 to play, four different players scored during a 13-1 run by the Dream to finish the game, including a three-point play by Lacy and Tamera Young's layup after a long outlet pass from Kristin Haynie.
Haynie scored on a drive with 35 seconds to play for a 71-67 lead.
Minnesota led by 16 midway through the third quarter, before Lennox scored nine points in a 15-4 run to get Atlanta within 54-49 at the quarter's close.
A free throw by Lennox, who spent the first three years of her career in Minnesota, got the Dream within one with 6:42 to play, but Wiggins answered with a 3-pointer. Wiggins was named the WNBA Rookie of the Month for June earlier in the day.
Minnesota made just six of its final 16 free throw attempts.
Back-to-back baskets by Augustus put the Lynx up 19-6 after one quarter. Atlanta shot just 16.7 percent in the frame.
Minnesota led 15-2 last Saturday in Seattle, before losing 96-71.
