Thanks to heritage sports brand Mitchell & Ness, you’ll soon be able to rock the threads that Michael Jordan wore for one of the best performances of his career.
This Mitchell & Ness “63 Points” Michael Jordan jersey throws it back to the 1985-86 NBA season or more specifically, the 1986 postseason. The date was April 20, 1986, and the Bulls were facing the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of the first round. M.J. was bouncing back from a broken foot after convincing Chicago Bulls management to let him return early, but that didn’t stop him from piling on the points.
To this day, the 63-point performance stands as the most points ever scored in an NBA playoffs game. Furthermore, it’s the third-highest scoring game of Jordan’s career, eclipsed only by a 69-point game against the Cavaliers in 1990 and a 64-point performance against the Magic in 1993, both of which were overtime scenarios.
