Bulls dispose of Pistons for 67th win

Regular season game #82
Bulls 103, Detroit Pistons 85

Box score

April 19, 1992 (Chicago Stadium) — It was a fitting conclusion to the regular season with a then franchise record 67th victory in a 103-85 rout over the once seemingly invincible Pistons.

Michael Jordan led all scorers with 32 points, including 14 of 15 at the line, while Bill Cartwright and Scottie Pippen chipped in with 14 points apiece. Isiah Thomas led Detroit with 28.

With the four-game playoff sweep from the 1991 playoffs and 4-1 record against Detroit during the 1991-92 regular season, the Bulls would go on a near record domination of the Pistons with 20 wins in the next 21 meetings.

That made it from the 1991 playoffs to late in the 1996-97 season a Bulls record against Detroit of 28-2. No more Bad Boys, just bad. Gotcha!
