1996 NBA Finals Game 6: Bulls return to the mountaintop

After two years away from the throne, the Bulls took their perch atop the NBA mountain with their fourth title in six seasons against the Seattle Supersonics.

“The Greatest Team in NBA history” won 72 games in the regular season and only played in one Game 6 the entire postseason. The Bulls won the first three games against Seattle, faltered in two straight games out in Seattle, then clinched the title on Father’s Day.

Neither team shot that great in a defensive struggle, but the Bulls got 49 points from their Michael Jordan/Scottie Pippen/Toni Kukoc trio to seal the title.
