Elton Brand Shoots Past Cedric Maxwell for 96th on NBA All-Time Free Throws Made List


Hawks veteran center Elton Brand has passed former pro baller Cedric Maxwell for 96th in most made free throws in NBA history.

Brand tied Maxwell with 3,598 career makes on Saturday against Denver, and has now passed him for sole possession of 96th all-time after going 2-of-4 from the line in last night’s thrilling 118-113 overtime win against the Raptors.

The former Duke Blue Devil now has 3,560 made free throws in his 14-year career.
