April 24, 1994: Robinson scores 71

On April 24, 1994, San Antonio Spurs star David Robinson scored 71 points as in the regular season finale in Los Angeles. The 71 points didn't only lead Robinson's squad to a 112-97 win, it also led Robinson to a scoring title as he just edged out Orlando's Shaquille O'Neal for the title. Robinson scored 63 percent from the floor making 26-of-41 including a three pointer and 18-of-25 free throws. The Clippers double teamed Robinson all night long, but some days the great players can't be stopped. Only 4 players other than Robinson have scored 70 points or more in a game and only one player has done it more than once, the one only Wilt Chamberlain crossed the threshold an astounding 6 times.

Here is a list of players who scored 60 points or more in a game:
