Prime David Robinson and a young Shaquille O'Neal had a personal battle ongoing for the scoring title in the 1993-94 season.

Going into the final game of the season, Robinson trailed O’Neal by an average of .06 points per game, needing a humongous scoring effort to swipe the crown from the 2nd-year center.

Spurs coach John Lucas had the team feed, Robinson, the ball even when he was double- and triple-teamed for much of the 44 minutes he played to help Robinson score 71 points.

None of his teammates took more than 10 shots, whereas The Admiral himself took 41 attempts, scoring on 26 of them in addition to converting 18 out of 25 free throw attempts.

His 71-point outburst meant that he was able to even top Shaq's total of 2377 points for the season with 2383.
