Game Update: Lynx surge to 37-28 lead at half

The Sun missed their final 11 shots, and were outscored, 23-10, in the second quarter en route to a 37-28 halftime deficit. The Sun failed to hit a field goal for the final 7:21 of the second quarter, and the Lynx used a 13-0 run over the final part of the frame to take control.

The shooting percentage (9-for-29) and turnovers (13) are certainly hurting Connecticut, but more so is the rebounding. It leads Minnesota, 19-17, on the boards overall, but Connecticut has just one offensive rebound.

Candice Wiggins, meanwhile, leads Minnesota with nine points -- all of those coming in the second quarter -- while Seimone Augustus has six assists to help make up for her lack of scoring (six points).

Asjha Jones leads all scorers with 14, but 10 of those came in the first quarter.
