The Lynx led by six at halftime in a head-spinning game that featured 24 lead changes and 11 ties in front of a packed Target Center crowd of 19,423 fans. The lead changed hands four times in the final 23.4 seconds.

Justin Thomas had a 6-under 66 on Friday to take a two-stroke lead halfway through the CIMB Classic, staying within striking distance of the tournament record he set in winning the title here last year.
