This day in Michael Jordan History: 4/13/89

Friday the 13th, 1989: Michael Jordan’s statistical tear to end the regular season seems too incredible to believe. With a run of 7 straight triple-doubles and triple-doubles in 12 of his last 16 games to close out the season, Doug Collins’ desire to make MJ a playmaker showed that he was just about as good a playmaker as anyone who ever played the game – if not better. Except he was doing it while scoring 30-40 points at the same time. MJ here gets 47pts on 17-30 shooting (57%), 11 rebounds, 13 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks in a close loss. Take a trip to MJ in his absolute prime and enjoy. Thanks to Balthus23 for putting this one up.
