Prime MJ vs Charlotte Hornets in 93

Michael-Jordan-fun-guy

Chicago Bulls were chasing their first Three-Peat in the 92/93 season with both MJ and Scottie in their primes. On the 12th of March, they faced-off against a tough Hornets squad which featured players like Alonzo Mourning, Larry Johnson & Muggsy Bogues.

Mike torched Charlotte for 52 points, including a pair of poster jams in Zo’s grill, as he led the Bulls to a convincing 123-108 win at the old Chicago Stadium.

Kendal Gill gave an interesting statement about the game - "Me, Larry Johnson, and Alonzo Mourning were young upcoming guns in the league. We were feeling ourselves in this game because we were giving it to the Bulls. After this play, our Wild oats quickly became shredded wheats! Alonzo had just blocked 2 of the Bulls shots. We started talking smack. I could since MJ getting mad because We were matched up against each other. I didn't give a crap though because I was young, dumb and didn't know any better. MJ backdoored me out of the triangle offense and put Zo on his collection of posters. Lol. Moral of this story? Callin out the Devil is one thing. Facing him is another! Never tug on Superman's cape unless you're absolutely ready! Did you hear me Pacman?"

Jordan, playing his third game after missing two with a foot infection, had 22 points in the third quarter. He put the Bulls in control of a game that was close until the final two minutes of the period when he scored 11 points to put Chicago ahead 93-87.

“We had something to prove tonight,” said Jordan, who had his 26th game of 50 or more points, his fourth this season. “They beat us last time (at the Stadium in January), and some of the comments in the paper were that they were on the same level as we were. We remember that stuff, and we wanted to show the difference.”
