ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Seimone Augustus hit a fade-away jumper in the paint with 15.3 seconds left in overtime to help the Minnesota Lynx beat the Dallas Wings 98-97 on Sunday night.

Plenette Pierson and Karima Christmas hit back-to-back 3-pointers to give the Wings a 97-94 lead with 1:21 left in overtime. Minnesota had four offensive rebounds on its next possession before Whalen made two free throws and, after a steal by Brunson on the other end, Augustus hit the winner.

Aerial Powers missed a leaning, tightly-defended shot as time expired for the Wings (9-14).

Dallas went scoreless for 4 minutes, 46 seconds as Minnesota built a 15-point lead late in the third quarter, but the Wings used a 25-10 run - capped by a 3 from Pierson - to tie it with 2:05 left in regulation.
