Have an hour and 24 minutes? Here’s a full game gem from 1997 when MJ23 was everything in the NBA, and no one thought that the Grizzlies were going anywhere. Also, imagine being in Vancouver watching this game with Jordan and Pippen right there in front of you.
Some interesting stats from the game include:
- Big Country scores 18 points
- Shareef scores 24
- MJ23 scores 28
- Scottie puts in 24
Perhaps one of my favourite things about this game is that Robert Parish is playing off the bench for the Bulls, he is 43 and in his last of 21 seasons. Vince Carter is entering his 22nd season as I type this, breaking Robert’s record! Air Canadaaaaaaa
Stat lines are fun, but on the court you can see some fun action:
- Toni Kukoc dunks. Yes.
- Ron Harper get a couple good dunks in during the first quarter
- Shareef gets up the and throws down a few good ones
- 43 year old Robert Parish dunks, must watch
This was not a good year for the Grizz–ok, none were–but his Airness is in full flight. I won’t spoil who wins or the score, enjoy the game and see the full stats below!
