Now, tell me were you in the joint the night MJ scored 69 points? If not, don’t worry, you can relive it with us.
It was a rainy day for Cavalier fans on March 28, 1990. Especially with Michael Jordan in the “Air.” After forty minutes of abuse being handed to Cleveland by way of MJ and his raging Bulls, he racked up a record-setting 69 points, 18 rebounds, 6 assists, and 4 steals — all within 50 minutes as he led his team to a 177-113 victory in overtime; furthering his campaign as the greatest basketball player of all time.
And, for the sneaker heads, His Airness wore the fire red Air Jordan V.
This obviously wouldn’t be the last that we hear from Jordan.
Below we have clips from that night.
