Minnesota topped Phoenix 85-62 in Game 1 of the West Finals. Taurasi and the Mercury need to win two straight games to advance to the WNBA Finals.
Augustus finished with 18 points and Taurasi 15, but the moment in the fourth quarter is likely what they'll be remembered for in this game.
The two players jostled with each other at the top of the key and after Augustus got in Taurasi's face, the former Connecticut star planted a kiss on her right cheek.
Both players were charged with a foul on the play.
