Minnesota led at halftime by 14. Dallas was within eight late in the third quarter but Brunson restored a 10-point lead with a basket and the Lynx remained in front by double figures.

The Wings and WNBA president Lisa Borders celebrated “Nancy Lieberman Day,” honoring the Basketball Hall of Fame member at halftime. Lieberman was the first overall pick in 1981 by the Dallas Diamonds of the Women’s Professional Basketball League.
