Leader of victories among all NBA franchises in the 2023/24 season, the Boston Celtics did not count on the record they would record last Tuesday.

The team became the first in NBA history to not take any free throws during a game, in a 104-91 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

As a result, the Milwaukee franchise, in turn, committed just four fouls throughout the game, the lowest number in history in an NBA game. Bucks coach Doc Rivers joked about what happened and said the referee was “lucky.”

“Adam Silver is the happiest. 1h57 of departure. My God, you can go to a game and still have dinner. Unbelievable,” said the coach.

If the unexpected record wasn’t enough for Jayson Tatum’s team, on the other side, the Bucks only shot twice, meaning both teams set a new record for the fewest total free throws shot during an NBA game.
