The Bulls were up 2-1 in the Conference Semifinals, playing the second of back-to-back games at home. The story goes that Jordan was in the locker room getting treatment for a groin injury when he heard Knicks coach Rick Pitino on television suggesting that Jordan might be faking. Jordan went for 47 points and 11 rebounds, with 18 in the fourth quarter. Pitino was left with nothing more to say.
