Michael Jordan didn’t like Jeff Van Gundy calling him a con man, and he didn’t like the New York Knicks thinking they could beat the Chicago Bulls.
So Jordan responded to the challenge the way he knows best, scoring 51 points–the most by an NBA player this season–in leading the Bulls to an 88-87 victory over the Knicks on Tuesday night at Chicago.
The Knicks used a 17-2 run to cut a 17-point deficit to 80-78 with 6:22 left. Allan Houston, who had missed 12 of his first 13 shots, made two three-pointers and a jumper to spark the surge.
But Jordan scored Chicago’s final eight points for an 88-81 lead, and a three-pointer by Houston and another at the buzzer by Chris Childs were not enough to bring the Knicks back.
“I was prepared to do whatever it took to win,” said Jordan, who reached the 50-point mark for the 36th time in his career. “There were times where things were going so well everything seemed to be in slow motion. I didn’t rush. I just relaxed and played.”
