I'm not sure it dropped all that badly:

1993-'94 - 6.5
1994-'95 - 6.0
1995-'96 - 6.3
1996-'97 - 5.8

You have to take into consideration that the season, much like this one, only featured teams playing in each other's conferences. That will lead to tighter defensive games and while I don't have the stats I believe scoring across conferences is higher to begin with. Plus it was a shortened season, a lot less room for error. The next season we saw scoring at a level we were used to with a lot of top end scoring among stars.
