Reserve guard Monica Wright scored a game-high 14 points as the Lynx beat the Chicago Sky 82-61 on Tuesday afternoon at the Sports Pavilion.
Wright was not the only bench player with a big game for the Lynx. Seven of them played and every one scored at least four points as the reserves outscored the starters 51-31.
The only other Lynx player in double figures was Seimone Augustus, a starter, with 10 in just over 15 minutes. The other starters all played between 18:18 and 22:11.
Chicago, 2-1 in the preseason, was led by Tamera Young's 11 points.
The Lynx, the defending WNBA champions, shot 52.9 percent from the field and had 26 assists, meaning they moved the ball around well. Starting point guard Lindsay Whalen, a former Gophers star, had a game high eight assists. Whalen also had nine points and five rebounds.
The Lynx, now 2-0 in preseason games, open the season against Phoenix at 11:30 a.m. Sunday at the Target Center.
