Miami Heat set a new NBA record
The Miami Heat set a new record for perfection in the National Basketball Association on Tuesday night when they played against the Oklahoma City Thunder at the FTX Arena. The Heat did not miss a single free throw during the game, which led to the establishment of a new record.
In the game that ended with a score of 112-111, the Heat had a perfect shooting performance from the free throw line, making all 40 of their efforts. Jimmy Butler led the way, making all 23 of his free throw attempts without committing a single error. The previous high for made free throws was 39, which was accomplished by the Utah Jazz in their game against the Portland Trail Blazers in 1982. The Miami Heat was successful in breaking the record as a result of Butler’s 23rd and final shot attempt of the night, which he made with just over 12 seconds left in the fourth quarter. This shot allowed the Heat to break the record.
The head coach of the Miami Heat, Erik Spoelstra, was interviewed by the media after the game and said the following: “That’s incredible. The whole season, we’ve been one of the best teams in the league at making our free throws, but that’s ridiculous.” Spoelstra also confessed that he didn’t realize his team hadn’t missed a free throw until after the game was over. He was astonished to learn this truth.
When the game was over, Butler had scored 35 points, making him the only player in the history of the league to do so with six field goals or fewer made and still end with 35 points or more. Butler’s accomplishment makes him the only player in the history of the league to do so with 35 points or more.
The 33-year-old athlete also tied Dominique Wilkins, who is now enshrined in the NBA Hall of Fame, for the second-most made free throws without a miss in the annals of the league’s history. With 24 made free throws in a row without a miss, James Harden holds the record for most made free throws without a miss. The record put an end to a chaotic night in Miami, during which the Miami Heat was losing by a score of 111-106 with less than a minute left in the game when it was broken.
Dewayne Dedmon, the center for the Miami Heat, was kicked out of the game for throwing a massage gun onto the court while the game was in progress after a physical confrontation with a coach. Earlier in the game, Dedmon had gotten into a dispute with another member of the coaching staff, and this followed immediately after that.

According to Spoelstra, the Miami Heat’s performance on Tuesday night was nothing out of the ordinary for them. It seems to me that now is the moment when our lives start gathering up speed and our competitive spirits are at full steam. It’s when everything is happening so quickly and when all of our competitive juices are beginning to run. That’s the group that any one of us may easily put ourselves in. My allegiance is with that particular sporting organization.
The contributions of Max Strus, who contributed 22 points, and Victor Oladipo, who scored 19 points, allowed the Heat to win back a crucial victory despite the absence of key starters such as Tyler Herro, Bam Adebayo, Kyle Lowry, and Caleb Martin. This was made possible by the efforts of Max Strus. Victor Oladipo scored 19 points.
The Thunder were led in scoring by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with 26 points, and Josh Giddey, who is only in his second year as a point guard, finished with a triple-double by scoring 18 points, grabbing 15 rebounds, and dishing out 10 assists. However, the Thunder ultimately fell short of winning the game. Due to the defeat, Oklahoma City’s record falls to 18-23, while Miami’s improves to 22-20 as a result of the victory.
