No. 10: The Snub

February 12, 1985—The first game after the famous All-Star game snub when Michael Jordan allegedly was the victim of a freezeout by Isiah Thomas and pals, the Bulls hosted the Pistons and won in overtime.

Jordan had 49 points, 15 rebounds, five assists and four steals, all team-highs. Thomas had a quiet 19 and shot five-for-15. It was clear who owned Chicago.
