3. The Start of Something Special
Game: Bulls vs. Knicks
In one of their first meetings, Patrick Ewing got the best of Michael Jordan by the slimmest of margins. Pat's put up 28 points, 17 rebounds and 2 blocks to go along with the game winner. Mike's line was just as stupid. His Airness had 30 points, 3 rebounds, 5 dimes, 6 steals, and 2 blocks to make it official. This Christmas Day nail-biter would be the beginning of a beautiful, yet bitter, rivalry between the Knicks and the Bulls for years to come.
