No. 14: The other double nickel
June 16, 1993—Actually, it was the second double nickel, as Jordan scored 55 in the playoffs against Cavs in 1988. This was the NBA Finals, though, Jordan’s biggest Finals scoring game ever as his three-point play with 30 seconds to go and the Bulls up one held off the Suns, who had won the previous game in triple-overtime and were looking to even the series.
The Bulls would go on to win in six on John Paxson’s famous three, though that three was the only fourth quarter points scored by the Bulls in that Game 6 other than by Jordan.
