Watch the highlights here.

Minnesota Lynx forward Maya Moore had her 12th 30-point scoring effort by tying the game 80-all with 7.9 seconds left. Then Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi made a pull up shot with 2.9 seconds left to get Phoenix an 82-80 lead. Taurasi had 24 points for the game.

Then after a timeout, Lindsay Whalen attempted a shot at the basket to tie the game for Minny, but she forgot that Brittney Griner was around. Griner blocked that shot in emphatic fashion to secure the win.

ESPN's highlights are embedded above but they will expire after a few days. The WNBA's YouTube channel still doesn't have anything on the game as of the time of this post, but we'll replace things accordingly when we see it.
