This day in Michael Jordan History: 4/28/88

MJ opens the 1988 playoffs with a bang with 50 points on 19-35 (54.3% shooting), 7 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks against the Cavaliers. This was a memorable series due to the myriad of records MJ set here. In the five game series, MJ would score, 50, 55, 38, 44 and 39. He set records for most points in a 5 games series (226), most field goals made in a 5 games series (86), and highest scoring average in a 5 game series (45.2 ppg). He also set the record with the only back to back 50 point games in NBA playoff history (50 and 55). MJ was absolutely on a different planet during this era. Enjoy.
