Harden now also has the free throw record for making maximum attempts without a miss. He broke Dominique Wilkins' 23 of 23 record of 1992. He now matches Dirk Nowitzki’s 24-of-24 during the 2011 Western Conference finals. During the same game, the referees also disallowed one of Harden's dunk, which in the end cost the Rockets their 22-point lead. The Rockets will play the Toronto Raptors next on December 6 IST (December 5 EST) at the Scotiabank Arena.
