Pippen joins 40-point club in win over Bucks
Regular season game #58
Bulls 109, Milwaukee Bucks 105
February 28, 1992 (Milwaukee, WI) — Scottie Pippen joined the 40-point club seemingly reserved for Michael Jordan with a 41-point explosion in a 109-105 victory in Milwaukee. He made 17 of his 24 shots from the field and connected on all seven free throw attempts in 42 minutes, while Jordan added 24 points in the win.
The Bulls, who improved to 47-11 on the season, were just beginning a run of 22 of 26 victories to win a then-team-record 67 regular season games overall.
Along with Jordan, Pippen, who started for the 1992 NBA East All-Stars, and was named to the All-Defensive First Team and All-NBA Second Team, was bound for the summer’s Olympic Dream Team that would easily capture gold in Barcelona.
