No need to dust off that old VHS for this one, we’ve got you covered!
While some still do have the video recordings of the 1992 NBA Finals between the Portland Trail Blazers and Chicago Bulls, tonight is your chance to watch Game 2 of Rip City's last Finals appearance once again with fellow Blazers fans on NBC Sports Northwest at 6:00pm.
The series was a showdown between NBA legends Clyde Drexler and Michael Jordan.
Yes, the Bulls took the series in six, but in Game 2 it seemed unlikely for the Trail Blazers to win in Chicago considering Game 1’s loss for Portland was pretty demoralizing. It became even more improbable after Drexler fouled out in the fourth quarter of Game 2. It seemed the game would be over.
Yet, the Blazers role players stepped up.
Hello, Kevin Duckworth and Danny Ainge!
This classic game had Drexler and Terry Porter combining for 50, while Ainge went off for 17 points on an efficient 7-of-10 shooting off the bench.
In the series, MJ averaged 35.8 points, 6.5 assists, and 4.8 rebounds. In a losing effort in Game 2, he finished with 39 points, 10 assists, and five rebounds.
Even Jordan's impressive night wasn’t enough for the Bulls to get past the Blazers on June 5th, 1992. Portland defeated Chicago 115-101 to even the series up at 1-1.
Now relive that memorable basketball battle: Game 2 is tonight at 6pm on NBC Sports Northwest.
