Minnesota outscored Seattle 23-11 in the third quarter to seize the lead.

The Lynx trailed by five points to start the quarter and ended it with a 59-52 edge. Collier started the second-half scoring with a layup off an assist from Smith.

The score was even at 49-49 with 4:34 remaining in the third quarter. Minnesota then went on an 8-0 run that included a 3-pointer by Collier and five points from McBride.

Seattle led 41-36 at the half.
