Default Dwight Howard sets new NBA record for free throws attempted in a game, with 39

Read http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=9051

Associated Press:

Dwight Howard broke Wilt Chamberlain’s nearly 50-year-old NBA record for most free throw attempts in a game, making 21 of 39 in the Orlando Magic’s 117-109 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors hacked Howard intentionally throughout, sending the notoriously poor shooter to the line early and often. Chamberlain, who Howard idolized growing up and used to have a photo clipping of the center in his Orlando locker, shot 34 for the Philadelphia Warriors against St. Louis on Feb. 22, 1962.

Howard finished with 45 points and 23 rebounds, and Hedo Turkoglu scored 20 points to propel the Magic to their third straight victory. It also marked the first time a player had at least 40 points and 20 rebounds since Shaquille O’Neal—another poor free throw shooter—had 48 points and 20 rebounds against the Celtics on March 1, 2003, according to STATS LLC.

Every time they mentioned the record as 34 I thought back to Shaq in 2000 vs the Pacers. I feel like he shot 39 in game 1 or game 2. Either im wrong or playoffs dont count.

But O'Neal was again the deciding factor, setting an NBA record with 39 free-throw attempts. He made 18 to finish with 40 points, along with 24 rebounds, as the Lakers won 111-104. Glen Rice and Ron Harper scored 21 points apiece to take up the slack left by Bryant.
