   RECAP
Chicago waltzed through the regular season in 1991-92, winning 67 games as Jordan reprised his previous season's performance. He won a second straight MVP Award, was named to the All-Star squad for the eighth year in a row, ran his streak of All-NBA First Team selections to six years and his string of NBA All-Defensive First Team selections to five, and was once again the league's leading scorer at 30.1 points per game. He started the season by scoring 40 or more points in three of the Bulls' first four games, and led the club in scoring in 69 contests during the year.

The Bulls posted the best record in the NBA by a margin of 10 games but had a tougher time in the postseason than the previous year. After sweeping the Miami Heat, they fought the New York Knicks for seven games before taking the semifinals series. The conference finals matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers lasted six contests. The Bulls then faced Portland in the NBA Finals and came away with a second straight title when they downed the Trail Blazers, 97-93, in Game 6. Jordan was the Finals MVP once again after averaging 34.5 points in 22 postseason contests. After the season, he played for the U.S. Dream Team at the Olympic Games and claimed his second gold medal.
