In 1991-92 the Bulls came roaring back. They dominated throughout the year and threatened the league record for victories in a season before ending up at 67-15, the best mark in franchise history. Chicago was slow out of the gate but then ran off a team-record 14-game winning streak for a 15-2 record by early December. The Bulls put together a 13-game streak in January to sit at 37-5, then coasted in with a 30-10 second half. Chicago equaled its best home record at 36-5 and set a new club mark with 31 road victories.

The playoffs, however, were tougher than the previous season's. Chicago had a rugged conference semifinal confrontation with New York, finally subduing the Knicks in seven games. In the Eastern Conference Finals they went to six games against Cleveland before prevailing.

Chicago faced a high-powered Portland team in the 1992 NBA Finals. After the Bulls notched a Game 1 victory at home, the Blazers gave Jordan and company a jolt by stealing Game 2 at Chicago Stadium. But Chicago managed to win two of three contests in Portland, bringing the series back home with a one-game lead after five. When the Blazers took a 15-point fourth-quarter lead in Game 6, a seventh game seemed assured. The Bulls' bench turned the game around, however, igniting a 14-2 run at the start of the final period as Chicago logged the biggest fourth-quarter comeback in Finals history. The Bulls won the game, 97-93, and took home their second consecutive championship, becoming only the fourth NBA franchise to win back-to-back titles.

Jordan eclipsed his regular-season average of 31.2 points per game by averaging 35.8 points per game in the six contests against Portland. He repeated as Most Valuable Player for both the regular season and the Finals, becoming the first player since the Boston Celtics' Larry Bird to take both honors in successive years. He also captured his sixth straight scoring title, was a starter in the All-Star Game, and was named to the All-NBA First Team and to the NBA All-Defensive First Team. Scottie Pippen was an All-Star starter and made the NBA All-Defensive First Team. In the summer of 1992 Jordan and Pippen both played on the United States Dream Team, which won a gold medal at the Summer Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain.

Can you imagine any of the 2014 playoffs teams having the mental toughness to get past these Knicks? With all the complaining to the refs these days?

soundtrack starting in 2:00 pls ?
Ah yes, this was when the Cavs would continue to get tortured by MJ and the Bulls year after year. But now they won the NBA title with their own #23. Kind of ironic if you think about it.
2:40 MJ says to McDaniel "Fuck You"
