JORDAN REAPED INDIVIDUAL HONORS WHILE LEADING THE BULLS TO A 36-5 HOME RECORD
1989-90 Season Highlights

   RECAP
Phil Jackson took over as head coach of the Bulls for the 1989-90 season, and everything started to click for Chicago. The Bulls put together a 55-27 record, the club's best showing since it had gone 57-24 under Dick Motta in 1971-72. Jordan was his usual dominating self at both ends of the court, leading the NBA in scoring (33.6 ppg) and steals (2.77 per game). He set a personal best when he scored 69 points in a 117-113 overtime win against the Cleveland Cavaliers. He also emerged as a legitimate threat from beyond the three-point arc, posting a .376 percentage-100 percentage points above his previous career high, while hitting 92 long-range shots, compared with 68 in his first five seasons combined.

A member of the All-Star Team once again, Jordan was also picked for the All-NBA First Team and the NBA All-Defensive First Team. In the postseason, the Bulls got past the Milwaukee Bucks and the Philadelphia 76ers in the first two rounds but fell to the Detroit Pistons in seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. Jordan averaged 36.7 points in 16 playoff games.
