No. 18: The Recovery

May 25, 1991—Game 3 of the 1991 conference finals had the Pistons fighting back for their playoff lives as Joe Dumars was racing in to make it a three-point game down the stretch.

Jordan forced the miss and the Bulls, with his game-high 33 points, went on to a 3-0 lead and eventually would sweep with the Pistons walking off the court prematurely as sore losers in Game 4 and stained forever.
