Maya Moore helped the Minnesota Lynx get back on track after a rare losing streak. Now the WNBA's best road team takes aim at knocking off the league's top home team. Moore and the Lynx seek their seventh straight win in the regular-season series when they travel to Atlanta to play the Dream on Tuesday night. The Lynx (18-6), owners of the WNBA's best record, ended their first three-game losing streak in over a year Sunday with an 88-57 home win over New York. Moore recorded a season-high 28 points and matched a career best with six 3-pointers as Minnesota knocked down a season-high 11 shots from beyond the arc. The club entered the game averaging 3.4 3-pointers per game. The victory gave the Lynx, who had allowed an average of 85.3 points during the skid, a half-game edge over streaking Los Angeles in the Western Conference. "It's definitely satisfying, but it's only one game," Moore said. "We need to stay on the climb." Minnesota, which owns a 7-4 road mark, was without Monica Wright due to a bruised right quadriceps suffered in Friday's 83-77 loss to last-place Tulsa. She scored a season-high 22 in a 94-72 home win over Atlanta (13-9) on July 9, the Lynx's largest margin of victory in series history. Wright, averaging 9.8 points, is listed as questionable for Tuesday. Atlanta is 10-1 at home and has won back-to-back games overall for the first time in seven weeks after losing eight of nine. Tiffany Hayes tied a career high with 23 points in her fourth game since returning from a torn meniscus as the Dream won 76-58 over Washington on Sunday. She said her knee is still not 100 percent and wrapped it in ice following the contest but described the soreness as being manageable during games. Hayes played 25 minutes after averaging 18.3 in her previous three contests. The Dream are 12-3 when she plays. "It's still getting better," said Hayes, averaging 10.9 points. "There's never any hesitation. I'm the worst at hesitation, but it felt good so I was just having a good game." WNBA leading scorer Angel McCoughtry added 22 points. She scored 16 on 5-of-19 shooting in the first meeting with Minnesota. The Dream's last win in the series was 76-58 at home July 1, 2010. Minnesota is 5-1 all-time at Atlanta, including a 73-67 victory in Game 3 of the 2011 WNBA finals to complete a sweep.
