1991: 15-2 ( 1 loss to the Lakers, 1 loss to the Sixers, sweeps against Pistons and Knicks)
1992: 15-7 ( 3 losses to Knicks, 2 losses to Cavs and Blazers each, sweeps Heat)
1993: 15-4 ( 2 losses to the Suns, two losses to the Knicks, sweeps Cavs and Hawks)
1996: 15-3 ( 2 losses to the Sonics, 1 loss to the Knicks, sweeps Heat and Magic)
1997: 15-4 ( 2 losses to the Jazz, 1 to the Heat and Hawks each, sweeps the Bullets)
1998: 15-6 ( 3 losses to the Pacers, 2 to the Jazz, 1 to the Hornets, sweeps Nets)

Hopefully the picture is becoming clearer, TVSG.... not only were the Bulls dynamite in the regular season, but they were juggernauts in the playoffs, only challenged seriously in 1992 and 1998. And at the end of the day, they WON all the significant games ( close-out games, 2 game sevens) and from memory I don't think any player produced any historic singular performance ( similar to how Jordan put up 63 on the Celtics in a 'losing' effort) that would warrant being considered 'classic'.

I will research and analyze out of those 26 losses which games were close

You aren't quite 'getting' what's being said to you. Every single one of those games were in series that the Bulls won. Unless those games you list featured some kind of 'dramatic' great performance or something to that effect, they're not likely to be considered classics. Now....follow along.... the reason why the Bulls-Suns game 3 in 1993 has been broadcast as a classic is because:

1) It was a triple overtime game....in the finals

2) Jordan had 44 points, Barkley went like 24 and 19

It was a 'dramatic' game, with singular great performances, went triple overtime, and was a finals game. I think the term 'classic' could be applied in this case. Now.....still following.... a regular hum-drum 88-85 Jazz over Bulls victory, without any dramatic elements ( a singular great performance, overtime, something that makes it stand out) isn't going to be considered a classic. Are you getting what we're saying now?
