The 1993-94 NBA scoring title wasn't decided until the final day of the regular season, and it took a big performance for one player to wrap it up.

San Antonio Spurs legend David Robinson dropped 71 points on the Los Angeles Clippers on April 24, 1994. Robinson's huge game gave him an average of 29.8 points per game on the season, which narrowly edged out the Orlando Magic's Shaquille O'Neal's average of 29.3 points per game.

Robinson finished the season with six more points than O'Neal despite playing in one fewer game.

Although Robinson won the 1995 NBA Most Valuable Player award and made 10 All-Star teams, the 1993-94 season was the only time that he led the league in scoring in his 14-year career.
