The Minnesota Lynx made WNBA history Friday night by scoring 37 consecutive points against the Indiana Fever.

The WNBA tweeted the following video of Minnesota's run, which saw it go from leading 22-9 to leading 59-9:

Minnesota took a 68-23 lead over Indiana into halftime, and they ultimately cruised to a 111-52 win. The 59-point margin of victory was the largest in WNBA history, per Fox Sports North

Friday's matchup looked one-sided on paper, as Minnesota leads the league with a 21-5 record, while the Fever are 11th out of 12 teams at 9-19.

The Lynx have won three WNBA championships, and they boast a star-studded roster led by Maya Moore, Sylvia Fowles and Seimone Augustus, all of whom were key in the 37-0 run.

Minnesota entered the night on a two-game losing streak having dropped close contests to the Los Angeles Sparks and Seattle Storm.

The Lynx also surprisingly lost 84-82 to the Fever on Aug. 6, but they exacted revenge in a big way Friday night.
