Orlando’s Howard breaks Chamberlain’s 50-year-old FT record

Wilt Chamberlain is best known for his 100-point game against the New York Knicks on March 2, 1962.

But he also had another record that was not as well known but was a 50-year-old regular-season record. The 7’1 giant set a record on February 22, 1962 with 34 free throw attempts as a member of the Philadelphia Warriors.

Last week, Orlando Magic star Dwight Howard shot 39 free throws in his team’s 117-109 win over the Golden State Warriors.

Prior to the game, Howard was the worst free-throw shooter in the NBA at 42.6%, so the Warriors thought they’d foul him in the post and make him score at the free-throw line.

The 26-year-old Howard took advantage of the situation, making 21 of 39 attempts and finished with 45 points and 23 rebounds.

It was the first time an NBA player scored at least 40 points and at least 23 rebounds since March 1, 2003 when the Lakers’ Shaquille O’Neal put in 48 points and yanked down 20 boards.
