Jordan takes over down the stretch as Bulls score key win against Knicks
Eastern Conference Semifinals | Game 5
Bulls 96, New York Knicks 88
May 12, 1992 (Chicago Stadium) — The Knicks were hanging in with a chance to return to New York and wrap up the series, trailing by three points in the last minute and a half. But Michael Jordan continued to attack the stacked in New York defense that had thwarted him much of the series, scoring 13 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter.
Jordan totaled 13 of the last 19 Bulls’ points and connected on 15 of 17 free throws in the 96-88 victory. He also converted a three-point play against so-called “Jordan stopper” Gerald Wilkins with 85 seconds left to secure the win and a 3-2 series lead.
