The Thunder make free throws
By Henry Abbott
Michael C. Lynch of ESPN Stats & Information e-mails:
The Thunder are shooting an incredible 85.1 percent at the free throw line this season entering Monday.
Sound ridiculous? It pretty much is. According to the 2010-11 NBA Guide, the single-season record for free throw percentage by a team is 83.2 percent by the 1989-90 Celtics.
Russell Westbrook, who shot 78.0 percent at the line last season, is shooting 88.8 percent this season, and attempting nearly 10 free throws per game.
