PHOENIX (AP) — Lindsay Whalen scored a season-high 29 points and the Minnesota Lynx remained perfect with a 78-60 victory over the Phoenix Mercury on Friday night.
Seimone Augustus had 14 points and Monica Wright added 11 for the Lynx (10-0), who have the longest unbeaten start in league history.
Minnesota got its club-record 10th straight road win and 13th consecutive regular-season victory dating to last year.
DeWanna Bonner scored 18 points and Candice Dupree added 11 for the Mercury (2-6), who have lost five of six games without All-Star guard Diana Taurasi. Taurasi is out indefinitely with a strained left hip flexor.
Phoenix had its lowest scoring total since a 77-55 loss to San Antonio on Aug. 28, 2008, the team's first game after a monthlong hiatus for the Beijing Olympics.
