Really interesting picture showing the Lakers free throw % in practice and in games. It’s not surprise that everybody shoots a higher percentage in practice compared to what they make during games but Dwight’s 32% increase stands out. We all remember watching clips of Shaq swishing 10+ straights free throws in practice like he was Steve Nash but once the physical and mental games start it becomes a whole new story.
Pretty amusing to see Chris Duhon at 46.2% (6-13) in games while he has one of the highest amount of made and attempts in practice.
