Boston Celtics finish with one of their best free throw shooting games in history


They're called free throws, but more often than not, they're anything but free. Just ask DeAndre Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, or Ben Simmons.

But the Celtics took full advantage at the charity stripe in their thrilling 130-125 overtime win over the Wizards Wednesday night, going a perfect 25-for-25 from the line en route to a seventh straight win. The 25 makes without a miss ties the C's fourth-best shooting performance from the line in team history.

April 12, 1990 -- 35/35
March 18, 1990 -- 33/33
January 5, 1973 -- 26/26
Wednesday -- 25/25
October 31, 1986 -- 25/25

No surprise here, but Kyrie Irving led the way, going 10-for-10 at the line as part of his 38-point performance. The Marcuses (Smart, 7-for-7, Morris, 4-for-4) were also perfect, while both Daniel Theis and Terry Rozier made both of their freebies.
