Maya Moore scored 32 points to help the Minnesota Lynx beat Tulsa 93-82  Wednesday in front of a record regular season crowd.

There were 16,413 fans on hand for the contest as part of the Lynx annual camp day.

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

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

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

The Shock erased double-digit deficits in the first, second and third quarters, but couldn’t overcome their own miscues and six Lynx players with at least 10 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.
