Monarchs-Lynx: Play
Sacramento, which joined Detroit and Indiana as the only unbeaten teams in the league, improved to 3-0 for the first time in its nine seasons.

After a layup by Nicole Ohlde gave the Lynx their first lead since the opening half at 66-65 with 1:34 remaining, Griffith scored off a pass from DeMya Walker to put the Monarchs back ahead.

Minnesota's Katie Smith committed a turnover on the next possession, but Nicole Powell missed two free throws for Sacramento with nine seconds remaining.

Working the ball around for a potential winning shot, Vanessa Hayden got it in the post and flipped a pass to Ohlde, who made a layup as the buzzer sounded. After initially calling it a made basket, the officiating crew reversed after viewing an replay.

Griffith made 7-of-10 shots and grabbed 11 rebounds and Walker chipped in 15 points for the Monarchs, who shot 43 percent (26-of-61).

Smith scored 23 points to move past Detroit's Andrea Stinson for fourth on the league's all-time scoring list at 3,355.

Stacey Lovelace-Tolbert had 10 points and seven boards for Minnesota (1-2).
