After his legendary 54 point outing in Game 4, the talk leading up to Game 5 was which MJ was going to show up? The one who'll go for 50+ or the one to set up his teammates and take over late? Or would it even matter considering NY hadn't lost a home game since JANUARY FREAKING 28! The Bulls hadn't defeated them in their building all season and most of the meetings were embarassing blowouts.
Either way, MJ approached this humungous game in traditional fashion. Expertly dishing out 12 of his 14 assists in the first 3 qtrs and scoring 17 of his 29 points in the final 14 minutes of the game. His 13th assist ended up being the GW winning basket when he set up BJ Armstrong a wide open for 3 with 75 seconds left.
This game, of course, features the unforgettable ending with Charles Smith getting stuffed 4 straight times right under the basket with a chance to make the GW layup.
