Shooter: Michael Jordan
Game: Game 6, 1998 NBA Finals
Ruh-oh. Scottie was hobbled with a bad back and the Bulls were on the brink of their first Game 7 in Finals history. Instead, just another case of Karl being Karl and Michael being Michael. 23 points in the first half, 45 for the game, and a shot for the ages. How ironic. If you wrote a movie that ended this way, no one would believe it. It didn't end this way, of course, but we can always pretend.
