Nov. 23, 1991: Known for usually backing up his constant trash talk, Jordan had an epic moment in the waning seconds of a regular-season, 107-100 victory in Denver. With 3.5 seconds remaining, Jordan was sent to the free-throw line because the Nuggets refused to surrender a breakaway dunk. Just before his second attempt, Jordan smiles at Nuggets center Dikembe Mutombo and the two exchanged words. Jordan obviously challenged he could hit the free throw with his eyes closed, and he proceeded to do just that. He went 7-for-7 from the line in that game and finished with 37 points.
