ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) - Epiphanny Prince scored 26 points and Courtney Vandersloot added 17 as the Chicago Sky beat the defending champion Minnesota Lynx 83-70 on Tuesday night.

Carolyn Swords had 11 points and nine rebounds to help the Sky (12-17) pull into a tie with New York for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with five games remaining. Chicago was without Olympic center Sylvia Fowles for the second straight game due to a calf strain.

Maya Moore scored 18 points to lead the Lynx (24-5). Rebekkah Brunson had 17 and Candice Wiggins added 14.

The Sky broke open a tight game in the fourth quarter with a 13-3 run over the final 5 minutes. Chicago finished with a 40-18 scoring edge in the paint and had a 31-24 rebounding advantage.
