NBA Lockout Day 28

December 20, 1989Michael Jordan puts up 52 points in Orlando, but the start-up Magic still beat the Chicago Bulls in quite a thriller. The entire game is available and I highly recommend any NBA fan to watch. Part 2Part 3Part 4Part 5Part 6Part 7

Vintage Paul Porter as the P.A. Announcer. Orlando, being coached by current t.v. color guy Matt Guokas, was still having a semi-decent season at that point in a dismal inaugural campaign. Jordan still had not won a ring, and he had a knack for putting up huge point totals in losing efforts.

Check out pre-goggles Horace Grant. It looks like Chicago was going to blow the home town team out of the O-Rena early, but it would be a close contest from the 2nd quarter and onward. Orlando folks will enjoy current GM Otis Smith putting on a show at the end. It's quite fun to see Phil Jackson squirm, it was his first season as a head coach after all. Terry Catledge and Reggie Theus had very nice efforts.
