A vintage Michael Jordan-Dominique Wilkins duel. December 21, 1991 was a time when the Atlanta Hawks were not a good team. But because 'Nique was so good, they were always able to compete. The Chicago Bulls just won their first title in their 3-peat run, so MJ didn't have to do as much as in previous seasons.
Jordan would put up 37 points, but so would Scottie Pippen. That would be more than enough to overcome Dominique's 43 points.
