In her second season in the WNBA in 2007, Seimone Augustus statistically had her best season ever, averaging a career-best 22 points, four rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.2 steals a game.

Ten years ago Thursday, Augustus had one of the most dominant games of her career, recording a “Perfect Night.”

As part of Throwback Thursday, we take a look back at that dominant performance from No. 33.

On June 8, 2007, Augustus and the Lynx took on the Los Angeles Sparks at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. The Lynx fell just short to the Sparks, 90-87.

Augustus finished with a team-high 28 points, four rebounds and three assists. The then second-year guard also had a “Perfect Night” from the field, shooting a perfect 11-for-11 in the game. She also shot 4-of-6 from the field in a total of 32-plus minutes played.

The 11-for-11 shooting from the field is the best “Perfect Night” in Lynx history and Augustus is the only player to accomplish the feat with double-digit shot attempts. The previous Lynx best was held by Svetlana Abrosimova, who shot 8-for-8 on July 13, 2005 against Detroit.

In honor of the performance 10 years ago, here are some photos of Augustus’ top moments from the 2007 season:
