June 3, 1992, vs. Trail Blazers
In Game 1 of the Finals, Jordan torched the Blazers for a playoff-record 35 first-half points, including six three-pointers (he made only 27 the entire regular season), as the Bulls rolled 122-89. After one hoop, he looked toward the sideline, turned his palms upward and shrugged, as if to say, What can I tell you? He finished with 39 points on 16-of-27 shooting. "The best game I've seen Michael play," teammate Horace Grant told reporters afterward.
