BULLS THREE-PEAT AND MJ TIES CHAMBERLAIN WITH SEVENTH STRAIGHT SCORING TITLE
1992-93 Season Highlights

   RECAP
The extraordinary had long since become commonplace for Jordan and the Bulls. Chicago posted its fourth straight 50-win season and took another division title in 1992-93 as Jordan averaged 32.6 points to claim his seventh straight scoring title and tie Wilt Chamberlain for most consecutive scoring crowns. He led the league in steals for the third time in his career, and earned a seventh straight appointment to the All-NBA First Team and a sixth straight appointment to the NBA All-Defensive First Team. He scored 30 points at the All-Star Game, giving him a career All-Star Game average of 22.1 points per game, the highest in NBA history.

Among a slew of fine single-game performances, Jordan scored 54 points against the Los Angeles Lakers in November, scorched the Washington Bullets for 57 in December, victimized the Orlando Magic for 64 in January, and then racked up 52 in March against the Charlotte Hornets. He also reached a milestone by scoring the 20,000th point of his NBA career.

In the postseason, the Bulls got by the Atlanta Hawks and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first two rounds without a loss. After dropping the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals to the New York Knicks, Chicago came back to take four straight and win the series. The Bulls defeated the Phoenix Suns in six games in the NBA Finals to nail down a third consecutive title. Jordan was named Finals MVP once again after averaging 41.0 points against the Suns to set an NBA Finals record.
