Augustus' putback gives Lynx win over Fever

INDIANAPOLIS — Seimone Augustus' rebound basket as time expired lifted the Minnesota Lynx to their 10th consecutive victory, 66-64 over the Indiana Fever on Tuesday night.

Lindsay Whalen's jumper rolled off the rim in the final seconds, and Augustus snuck in for her fifth rebound and the winning score. She was mobbed by her teammates in the free-throw lane when the final buzzer sounded.

With just a handful of games left and playoff positions still up for grabs, Augustus' 18 points helped the Lynx (23-6) keep pace with Phoenix for the West's top spot. Indiana (13-16) is still competing for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Karima Christmas led the Fever with 15 points, and Erlana Larkins finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds.
