MINNEAPOLIS — It took a quarter to get going, but once they did, the Minnesota Lynx showed that they can recover from a loss just fine.

Seimone Augustus scored a season-high 26 points, rookie Devereaux Peters added a career-best 18, and the Lynx got back on track by beating the New York Liberty 102-70 on Thursday night.

Taj McWilliams-Franklin added 15 points for Minnesota (11-1), which started the season a WNBA-best 10-0 before losing to Seattle on Sunday.

“We wanted to see how we’d bounce back. I think everybody wanted to see it,” Augustus said. “We had a lack of aggression, but in the second quarter, we showed what we can do.”

The Lynx have won 12 straight games at home since a loss to New York on Sept. 2 last season.
