61 Points Against the ClippersThe Lakers played against the Clippers on March 6, 2000, which also happened to be Shaq's 28th birthday. The game was considered a Clippers "home game," prompting Shaq to ask his crosstown rivals for some extra tickets for friends and family. The Clippers refused. Shaq responded by scoring a record 61 points against them that night, and also making some epic plays, including an infamous failed 3 pointer/alley oop pass to Kobe Bryant.
