Cohen's Analysis: Nick Anderson was entering the prime of his career while Shaquille O’Neal was in the infantile stages of his eventual illustrious vocation.
In the second to last game of the 1992-93 season against the New Jersey Nets, both delivered epic moments. Anderson erupted for a career-high 50 points off the bench, while O’Neal broke the backboard for the second time that season.
The Magic also won the game to keep them alive in the playoff race. They finished tied with the Pacers for the eighth playoff spot, but Indiana owned the tiebreaker to advance.
