This is the start (sixth game) of the long and exhausting 97-98 season for the Bulls. Scottie Pippen is out and most of the team isn’t that young and has only got enough energy in them for this last championship run. The situation isn’t that good off the court with Pip being unhappy about his contract and there are tensions between Jerry Krause and Michael Jordan/Phil Jackson. So a 21 point performance by Steve Kerr off the bench really helps Chicago defeat New Jersey on this particular night. November 8, 1997.
