1998 NBA Finals Game 6: The end of a dynasty

Six titles in eight years.

With one shot, the dynasty ended.

Michael Jordan‘s jumper in the final seconds of Game 6 in the 1998 NBA Finals helped the Bulls avoid the dreaded Game 7 on the road and clinch their sixth title with a 87-86 victory.

Jordan was atrocious from the field in Game 6 (15-for-35 for 45 points), but hit the big shots down the stretch to help the Bulls clinch their third straight championship (again) on the road.
