Yes, in the 70's

1976 Three for two rule introduced to allow players fouled in the act of shooing to attempt a third fouls shot if either of the first two attempts miss.

There was also a 2 for 1 rule during that time. All defensive fouls were awarded a free throw or free throws. If a one shot foul was called and the defensive team was in the penalty situation, the shooter was awarded 2 shots to make 1.
