1991 Finals...

Finishing with a 61-21 record, the Bulls won their second division title and became just the ninth team in NBA history to win 60 or more regular-season games. They swaggered through the postseason, sweeping the New York Knicks in three games, eliminating the Philadelphia 76ers in five, and reaching the NBA Finals by winning four straight against the defending NBA-champion Detroit Pistons.

The Bulls would defeat the Lakers in 4 games to 1. This would ultimately turn out to be Magic Johnson's final NBA Finals appearance. The only win for the Lakers came in Game 1 when Sam Perkins hit the game winning 3 point shot. Other memorable moments came when Jordan shot 15 of 18 from the floor in Game 2 including a layup when he tries to dunk he sees Sam Perkins trying to block him and switches hands and the ball went in with a play known as "The Move" and later sent Game 3 to overtime with a game tying jumper, a first of many such heroics for him on the NBA's greatest stage.
