Default Michael Jordan Greatest Games: 34 Points (Amazing Defense) vs Hawks (1987)



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFwJOcyqVmM

Michael in his young prime (86/87 regular season) torching the Hawks in legendary Chicago Stadium. MJ scored 34 points, but his defense was something special, he had 5 steals and 5 block shots. Jordan blocked 3 shots from Hawks center Kevin Willis - must see defense! This game is a proof of Michael's amazing defensive abilities.

Bulls won the game 113:103.

Jesus, that picture of his "Kiss the Rim" dunk is absurd.

Holy shit @ the block at 2:24. He was credited with 5 blocks this game, but could have had 7 - got whistled for a cheap foul on one and the play was whisted dead before this one at 2:24. Terrific behind the back dribble split of the pick and roll at 5:54. His defensive sequence from 6:40-6:45 is crazy - he gets his hand on the ball like 4 times, and then causes the missed shot with his pressure.

Dude got his hand on the ball defensively like 13-15 times this game at a minimum. Think about that for a second.
