No basketball player is perfect. Like all humans, basketball players have their flaws, some are more prominent than others. For example, take Dwight Howard, who has never been a good free throw shooter despite his best efforts to improve from the charity stripe. Howard’s connecting at a 63 percent clip this year, and it says a lot about his struggles from the line that it’s the second-best single-season mark of his career.
Howard had a big night on Friday (25 points, 17 rebounds) and went 7-for-10 at the free throw line, but it wasn’t enough, as the Washington Wizards fell to the Brooklyn Nets, 115-104. The home loss knocked Washington to 5-10 on the year, and after the game, Howard decided he wanted to get some extra work in.
