    Dwight Howard Breaks Chamberlain's Free Throw Record Number of Attempts





    By: Val Marvin Macanas

    Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic has broken the long standing number of NBA free throw attempts record in a single game that was built by Wilt Chamberlain. Wilt had 34 free throw attempts in their game against St. Louis in year 1962.

    Dwight on the other hand shot 39 free throws. 7 more than Wilt's 32. He made 21 out of those 39 free throw attempts.

    Dwight's 21/39 free throw shooting was quite impressive considering that it is his water-loo. No wonder he was able to carry his team into a win over the Golden State Warriors via 117-109. All in all, Dwight registered 45 points and 23 rebounds. That was another double-double performance for the Big Guy.
