NEW YORK -- Cappie Pondexter banked in a jumper from the fouline with four-tenths of a second left to lift the New York Liberty to a 77-75 win over the Atlanta Dream on Wednesday.

Pondexter took a handoff from Plenette Pierson at the top of the key and banked in the winning shot. Atlanta couldn't get a shot off at the other end. Tina Charles had 18 points and 15 rebounds to lead the Liberty (8-13), who snapped a two-game losing streak.

New York held a 10-point lead heading into the fourth before the Dream scored the first 10 points of the final period to tie it at 65 with 5:54 left.

The teams traded baskets until Jasmine Thomas' 3-pointer tied it at 75 with 1:03 left. Neither team could score until Pondexter's winner. Angel McCoughtry led Atlanta (15-6) with 20 points.

LYNX 93, SHOCK 82

MINNEAPOLIS -- Maya Moore scored 32 points to help the Lynx beat the Shock.

Moore, who has at least 30 points nine times this season -- including each of the three meetings against Tulsa, leads the league in scoring.

Lindsay Whalen added 18 points for the Lynx (17-6), who improved to 17-1 against the Shock since 2010.

Glory Johnson had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Shock (7-15), who have dorpped five straight games. Skylar Diggins led Tulsa with 19 points.

The Lynx set a regular season franchise attendance record with the 16,413 fans, who came as part of the team's annual camp day promotion.
