In 1995, Michael Jordan returned to the basketball court from the baseball field, but his Bulls in the Eastern Conference semifinals The Magic, led by Shark O'Neal, was eliminated 4-2. Magic guard Nick Anderson also dropped the sentence "No. 45 Jordan can't fly", sowing Jordan's revenge.
In the 1995-96 season, the Bulls returned strongly. The regular season won 72 wins and broke the NBA record at the time. The first two rounds of the playoffs lost only one game and easily advanced. Meeting Magic in the final again showed a more terrifying dominance. G1 defeated the opponent by 38 points, and G3 limited the opponent's score to 67 points, which was the second-lowest scoring record in the playoffs since the introduction of the 24-second timer. Before G4, the Magic at home was planning to come to a counterattack that would kill them.Bull coach Phil Jackson just said faintly, "You can't have the slightest sympathy for them."
The Magic really made a strong resistance. O'Neal scored 28 points, 9 rebounds and 3 blocks on 11 of 13 shots. Penny Hardaway also scored 28 points and 8 assists. Apart from Jordan, the Bulls’ highest score was Pippen’s. With 12 points, he only made 4 of 11 shots.
However, there is JoeDan is enough. The old hooligans scored 45 points on 16 of 23 shots in the game. At a critical moment or when the Magic wants to follow the stage, he can always use a jumper or dunk to stifle the opponent's momentum. In the end, Jordan led his team to a 106-101 away win, which swept the Magic with a total score of 4-0 and avenged the defeat of the previous year. The Anderson who said "Jordan on the 45th can't fly" convincingly admitted that Jordan is "the best of all the guys who put on sneakers to play."
