actually watching it right now... her 2 TO's back 2 back were horrible and she should've completed the 4pt play. She did get the reb and handed Wiggins a open 3

yeah she did have some 'rookie moments' out there, as Reeve pointed out.... I was like "No, Maya, no!" while I saw it happen. But hitting that huge 3 late was awesome, and she was in there scrapping, got a few late rebounds and hustle plays, etc.

Poor execution on the part of Atlanta. The shooter should never, ever, ever, have even a remote chance of rebounding a free throw.

You are so right! It just amazes me how "pros" ignore the fundamentals of basketball.

I always feel like "Rookie mistake" is a lazy phrase. Rookies have been playing for looong time. A mistake is a mistake. ;-)

I agree...

I agree, too. Augustus, Whalen and Mc-Williams-Franklin each had three, while Brunson had five. I'd say Maya is in good company with her four.

Let me join the chorus. I also agree. However, the mistakes most rookies make is not adjusting the speed, instincts, talent level, skills, savvy, and experience of their competition.
