Sit Back And Enjoy Watching All 39 Of Dwight Howard's Record-Breaking Free-Throw Attempts

100, 55, 20,000. Even casual basketball fans know Wilt Chamberlain's most famous records by heart. Yet the Stilt lost claim to one of his lesser-known NBA marks last night when Orlando's Dwight Howard went to the free-throw line 39 times, smashing the previous record of 34.

He missed 18 of those 39 foul shots, which provides the inspiration for our soundtrack featuring The Dresden Dolls. (Sadly, this left him short of yet another Wilt record, 22 missed free throws in a single game, something we'd have been way more excited about.) [TNT]
