Nope, it was game 7. They won the game 88-83....

Then it's likely we don't look at the same lists. Again it's all subjective, isn't it?

Knew what was inaccurate? The Bulls were trailing by double digits AT HOME in GAME 7. And won by 5 points.... as I said, the Pacers took them to the limit.

You've been missing the past couple of weeks. Wherever it was, would you mind going back?

The Bulls were very fortunate to win game 7 against Indiana. The Pacers led by 10 very early in the game. A couple of bounces go Indy's way and they win pretty convincingly. The Bulls dominated the 2nd quarter and the second half was pretty even.

MJ went 9-25 from the field, Pippen 6-18, and Rodman only grabbed 6 rebounds. The only Bulls that played halfway decent were Kukoc(21/4 on 7/11 shooting) and Kerr(11 points and 3/5 from downtown)

Also keep in mind the Bulls won despite shooting 38% from the field and Indy shooting 48%. The main difference was rebounding, 50-34 in favor of Chicago(offensive rebounds were 22-4). Second chance opportunities killed the Pacers.

Thank you. I had that game recorded years ago, and I recall that it was a hard fought contest. It wasn't evident that Bulls were going to pull it out till the end.

Yes, 35 year old Michael Jordan that went 9-25 and 10-15 at the foul line in a game 7. That 1998 Bulls squad was the least talented of Chicago's championship teams. MJ was 35 and clearly slipping, Pippen missed about half the year with a back injury, Longley missed significant time, and Ron Harper was their starting PG despite knee problems. Hell Rodman came off the bench in quite a few games.

And MJ winning MVP in '98 was a joke. That MVP was Malone's.
