If you must have an explanation … In his fifth game back from the baseball hiatus of 1993 to ’95, Michael Jordan dropped 55 points on the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Keep in mind, this is back when the Knicks were good. Very good. Defending-Eastern-Conference-champions good. Wearing #45, Mike lit up John Starks and Co. on 21-of-37 shooting from the field and 10-of-11 at the stripe. And he assisted on the game-winner. But the sickest play on here might be the one turned in by Scottie Pippen at the 1:40 mark.
