No. 19: Top 20 moments of the 1991-92 season
In honor of the 20th anniversary of the Chicago Bulls’ second NBA championship, Bulls.com counts down the top 20 moments from the 1991-92 season
Bulls continue dominance over the Bad Boys
Regular season game #41
Bulls 117, Detroit Pistons 93
January 24, 1992 (Chicago Stadium) — It perhaps was more symbolism in the Bulls’ third straight win over their former nemesis, the Bad Boys of the Pistons, and among four victories over Detroit in five meetings that season.
The Bulls won easily, 117-93, behind Scottie Pippen’s 29 points, eight assists, six rebounds and three steals. Michael Jordan added 20 points as the Bulls improved to 36-5 on the season.
But it was lights out, literally, in the old Stadium when there was a 24-minute power outage to start the game. It was also lights out, in effect, on the Pistons’ run as they were dominated most of the season by the Bulls and began to break up with coach Chuck Daly leaving, Dennis Rodman starting to force his way out, and Isiah Thomas beginning to eye retirement.
