MINNEAPOLIS – The Tulsa Shock struggled offensively in a 75-65 loss to the Minnesota Lynx on the road on Tuesday.

Tulsa shot just 34 percent from the field, and made just four of its 20 3-point attempts.

Rookie Liz Cambage was one of the bright spots for the Shock as she put up her second career double-double in as many games.

Cambage had 16 points and 15 rebounds to go along with two steals and two blocks.

She didn't shoot well in the process (just 5-of-14) but the Shock as a whole didn't shoot well either.

Tulsa had some tough early deficits, including 15-3 and 24-8, but the Shock weathered the storm and gave themselves a chance to compete at the end.

Minnesota led 60-40 at the end of the third quarter, but the Shock went on a 16-6 run to chip away at the lead.

Tulsa got it down to eight points several times, but couldn't rally back far enough, falling to 0-2 on the season.

Former Oklahoma State guard Andrea Riley had 10 points in 19 minutes for Tulsa.

The Shock will face the San Antonio Silver Stars for the second time in the first three games on Friday. Tipoff for the first home game of the season is set for 7 p.m.
