The Flu Game

June 11, 1997: It was known as "The Flu Game." Jordan entered the Finals contest against the Jazz drained by an illness, but he generated enough energy to sink a 3-pointer with 25 seconds remaining, pushing the Bulls ahead 88-85. After the shot, an exhausted Jordan rested on Scottie Pippen's shoulder as Pippen practically carried Jordan to the bench. Jordan finished with 38 points in a 90-88 victory in Utah for a 3-2 series edge.
