Said Augustus, smiling: “That tango dance we had? She just wanted some of my deliciousness.”

Perhaps. But in a battle of wills, the Lynx responded. Up 26 points at the time, Moore got a three-point play, then Augustus had a steal, feeding Whalen for a layup to push the lead to 31, the biggest of the night.

“Just 31?” Taurasi asked. “That’s it? When another team plays like that, and you play terrible, we should have been down 50.”

The Lynx scored 24 points off 19 Phoenix turnovers, bested the Mercury in the paint and on the fast break — a 20-2 runaway. So now Phoenix has to figure out a way to erase the memory of six losses to the Lynx this season by an average margin of 17.2 points.

And the Lynx just need to keep it going.

“I thought we were really hard to play against,” Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said. “We played off our defense. We were pretty motivated.”
