i would bet money that the thermal shock was not the real cause of it, there was probably a microscopic crack or uneven stress in the glass, or it might have gotten bumped. also the out side could have gotten cold water on it from the sink or something that caused a more extreme thermal range that might have let it crack

as long as you slowly heat the glass you will not have any issues
