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.

With the NBA still in a lockout between players and owners, Dwight Howard and his pals, Gilbert Arenas and Chris Duhon sat down and talked about what could they do for the City of Orlando, Florida as far as a exhibition basketball game.

The three came up with a game that would feature current and former Magic basketball stars.

On Sunday, they had an OLD SCHOOL vs. NEW SCHOOL game.

Players who participated included Howard’s current teammates Arenas, Ryan Anderson,  Brandon Bass, Quentin Richardson, and Jameer Nelson.

Former Magic players who played included Trevor Ariza, Matt Barnes, Courtney Lee, Marcin Gortat and Rashard Lewis.

The celebrity coaches included boxer Floyd Mayweather and rapper Lil’ Wayne.

The Old School Magic won 114-102.

The game was held on the campus of the University of Central Florida where 8,000 fans made their way into UCF Arena which holds 10,000. The fans paid anywhere from $25 to $100.00 for tickets. All the proceeds benefitted Howard’s charitable D12 Foundation.

The Orlando Magic won its fourth straight game by breaking open a close game in the fourth quarter with top scorer Dwight Howard on the bench. Howard went out of the game with his fourth foul late in the third quarter and didn’t play in the fourth quarter as the Magic beat Cleveland, 110-95.

Two recent acquisitions led the way as Gilbert Arenas scored 22 points and Jason Richardson added 20 as the Magic canned a season-high 19 three-point goals.

The Cavaliers lost for the 14th time in 15 games and are 1-13 in a miserable December. The 19 three-pointers are a season-high against them.

Orlando attempted 31 three-point shots and had six players in double figures scoring.

Antawn Jamison led Cleveland with 21 points and Daniel Gibson who fouled out in the fourth quarter, had 15.

CLEVELAND CAVALIERS GAME NOTES

* Cleveland signed swingman Alonzo Gee. The 6’6 Gee has played for San Antonio and Washington this season. He averaged 2.1 points and 1.6 rebounds in just under 10 minutes per game.

Orlando beats Boston again, 113-92 in Game 5

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Orlando Magic, who looked like they were going to be swept in four games, have come off the mat to win their second in a row over Boston.

The Magic took another leap in trying to overcome the improbable 3-0 series deficit as Dwight Howard scored 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead them to a  113-92 win over Boston on Wednesday night in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.

The series moves back to Boston on Friday. The Celtics look every vulnerable right now because starting center Kendrick Perkins picked up his seventh technical of the playoffs, which is a mandatory suspension. Glen Davis sustained a concussion last night and couldn’t keep his balanced and had to be helped by referee Joey Crawford from falling flat on the floor. Marquis Daniels got elbowed and Rasheed Wallace hurt his back.

Game 7 would be in Orlando. Of the the 93 teams who have fallen into an 0-3 hole, only three have even forced a Game 7.

Jameer Nelson scored 24 points, and J.J. Redick had 14 to help the Magic beat Boston up and down the floor.

Rasheed Wallace scored 21 points and Rajon Rondo had 19 for Boston.
