Fowles ties Leslie for most WNBA double-doubles

ATLANTA -- Minnesota Lynx center Sylvia Fowles played her way into the history books on Friday.

The 33-year-old had 12 points and 12 rebounds against the Atlanta Dream for her 157th career double-double, tying the WNBA record set by Lisa Leslie (1997-2009).

Fowles is in her 12th WNBA season.

Elizabeth Williams scored 17 points, and Alex Bentley added 10, including a late 3-pointer to help the Dream spoil Fowles' night and beat the Minnesota Lynx 60-53.

The Dream (5-10) never trailed, and Williams scored six points during a 10-2 run that gave Atlanta a 19-8 lead with three minutes left in the first quarter. Fowles made a driving layup to trim Minnesota's deficit to 55-51 with 2:30 remaining, but Bentley's 3 and two free throws by Monique Billings pushed the lead to nine with 44.3 seconds to play.

Williams was 6-of-9 shooting and grabbed eight rebounds. The rest of the Atlanta players shot 18-of-62 from the field.

Atlanta snapped Minnesota's streak of road wins when holding an opponent below 40% shooting, dating to 2014, at 27.

Danielle Robinson led the Lynx with 14 points.
