Seimone Augustus added 21 points, Rebekkah Brunson had 20 and Lindsay Whalen had 11 points and 10 assists for league-best Minnesota (17-3).

Danielle Adams had a season-high 31 points and Jia Perkins added 18 points for San Antonio (7-14). Jayne Appel, who averaged 13.3 rebounds in the team's four previous home games, was limited to three rebounds in 30 minutes.
