As we are just minutes away from tip off of the 2015 NBA Finals, The Source Sports pays homage to the G.O.A. T. known as Michael Jordan. On this day 23 years ago, Mike did the unthinkable and added a classic performance to his legendary legacy. Jordan set a new NBA Finals record for the most points scored in a half by putting up 35 first half points against Clyde Drexler‘s Portland Trailblazers in front of a sold out crowd in Chicago. Jordan was able to hit 6 first half three pointers, a finals record at the time. Here’s a classic throwback clip of him showcasing the legendary shrug after his 6th three swished through the net.
The Bulls went on to win Game 1 with the score of 122-89. MJ finished with 39 points.
