April 20th, 1994: Shaq makes 22-of-31 shots for a then career-high 53 points against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He also grabbed 18 rebounds, dished 4 assists, blocked 2 shots and had 2 thefts in just 39 minutes against his college nemesis and future teammate Christian Laettner.
JR Rider led the Wolves with 28 points and 8 rebounds. Everybody hates Chris(tian), who made the Dream Team over Shaq, was held to just 6.
6 years later, Shaq would record his second 50 & 15 games by putting up 61 & 23 on his birthday against the Clippers.
