Offensive explosion: David Robinson goes for 71 points (VIDEO)

robinson-71-points-clippersFor many years, the San Antonio Spurs center David Robinson was the heart and soul of his team.

During the 90’s, Robinson was the Spurs’ main driving force, and was among the 3 best centers in the league.

Robinson reached a new highlight of his career on April 24, 1994, when he scored 71 points in a 112-97 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Robinson made 26 shots from 41 (63 percent), grabbed 14 rebounds, blocked 2 shots, made 18 free throws of 25. He also managed to hit one three pointer of two attempted.

Robinson led the NBA in scoring that season (93-94), averaging 29.8 points per game, along with 10.7 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 3.3 blocks.

Robinson trailed Shaquille O’Neal by 33 points, but his 71 points was enough to best Shaq and claim the league’s scoring title. At the time, he became just the fourth person to ever break the 70 threshold.
