April 30, 1991: The Bulls trailed the Knicks 54-50 in the second quarter of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Jordan, on the left wing, drove by guard John Starks but was cut off by old friend Charles Oakley. Jordan then faked as if to bring the ball back out, pivoted and exploded back to the rim for a one-handed flush over 7-footer Patrick Ewing. Jordan, who was fouled, stared down a stumbling Ewing after the play. Kicks guard Hubert Davis' look of disbelief on the bench summed it up. The Bulls won the game and swept the first-round series.
