46. Shaq Scores 61 on His Birthday

Date: 5/6/2000

The league's most dominant player only wanted one thing for his birthday. The ball. Entering the final game of the season in a matchup with the Clippers, Shaquille O'Neal extended L.A.'s winning streak to 16 games with an all time performance. He finger rolled, led fast breaks, inhaled rebounds, made his free throws and of course, he dunked. When he was done, the Clippers and the box score were in shambles. 45 minutes, 24-35 FG, 13-22 FT, 61 points and 23 rebounds. On this night, much like many others, no one could stop the reign.
