1992 NBA Finals Game 6: Bulls drop 33 points in 4th, win back-to-back titles

You could make the argument that the 1992 version of Michael Jordan was “Peak Jordan”. The Bulls needed every bit of Peak Jordan in the fourth quarter of Game 6 against Portland.

The Bulls started the fourth quarter of Game 6 down 15 points to the high-flying Portland Trail Blazers. Even though Jordan would finish the job in crunch time, it was the bench — yes, the B.J. Armstrong-led bench — of the Bulls, plus Scottie Pippen, that got the Bulls back into the ballgame.

And, as only Michael Jordan could, finished off the Blazers with a 33-point performance to bring the title back to Chicago.
